In a statement made yesterday, Senator John McCain appears to be reaching out to all factions within the GOP to bring unity to a divided Party. McCain has recognized his status as the Presidential front-runner and is clearly aware of the fact that he cannot win the general election without the support of moderate Republicans and Independent voters.
From the AP:
“I think they’ve made their case against me pretty eloquently,” he said,
adding wryly, “if that’s the right word.” He asserted that the pundits’
conservative hero Ronald Reagan — and his — reached across the aisle to
Democrats just like he wants to do as president.
“I do hope that at some point we would just calm down a little bit and see if there are areas that we can agree on for the good of the party and for the good of the country,” he said.
Today McCain and Romney both address the annual CPAC (Conservative Political Action Committee) Conference, where McCain is expected to make his case of why the far-right conservative wing of the GOP should support him.
