John McCain’s reliance on negativity has cost him at least one high profile friend. Former Michigan Governor William Milliken, a Republican, last night revoked his endorsement of the Republican presidential candidate:
“He is not the McCain I endorsed,” said Milliken, reached at his Traverse City home Thursday. “He keeps saying, ‘Who is Barack Obama?’ I would ask the question, ‘Who is John McCain?’ because his campaign has become rather disappointing to me.”
“I’m disappointed in the tenor and the personal attacks on the part of the McCain campaign, when he ought to be talking about the issues.”
Meanwhile, Lincoln Chafee, a former Senator from Rhode Island, and Phil Arthurhultz, a former Michigan state Senator, are both backing Barack Obama. And, yes, they’re both Republicans.
