McCain: GOP Would Be ‘Foolish’ to Ignore Voters
Sen. John McCain may not like Donald Trump, but he understands the importance of the GOP falling in line and voting for the Republican Party’s nominated candidate.
“You have to listen to people that have chosen the nominee of our Republican Party,” the Arizona senator and 2008 GOP nominee said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think it would be foolish to ignore them.”
The Hill reports:
Responding to comments from Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), both of whom have refused to back Trump thus far, McCain said there’s a disconnect between party leaders and the electorate.
“You have to draw the conclusion that there is some distance, if not a disconnect, between party leaders and members of Congress and the many voters who have selected Donald Trump to be the nominee of the party,” McCain said.
