Cash Poor Candidate
by

David Freddoso has a good piece on John McCain’s travails. It’s hard to remember that McCain was once considered a movement conservative. In the intraconservative Firing Line debate on the Panama Canal Treaty, he was on the same side as Ronald Reagan and Pat Buchanan. As late as 1996, he was a supporter of Phil Gramm’s presidential campaign.

Now McCain is struggling to stay afloat, and his poor relations with conservatives is the main reason. He needs something substantial to break his way fairly soon.

UPDATE: Sean Higgins points out in the comments that it was actually McCain’s father who was in the Firing Line debate.
