Bilbray's campaign spokesman, Steve Danon, said he got the first call from McCain on Monday to talk about the political climate surrounding immigration. As calls went back and forth, Danon said he told the McCain staff that immigration was the hot issue in the district. McCain's staff later asked Danon to consider excluding press from the fundraiser. After Bilbray refused to rescind press invitations, McCain canceled late yesterday morning, Danon said.
Yes John McCain who made it harder for people to speak out with their own money doesn't want to be held accountable for his political choices to the little people through the media again.
But why should we worry if a presidential canidate loathes free speech?
