Announcer: It's called courage.
In Vietnam, John McCain stood up to his communist captors and refused early release from prison.
In Washington, he's a leader attacking big government waste. Attacking the special interests.
Now they're coming after him here in South Carolina because John McCain will take the government away from the special interests and give it back to you.
His courage and common sense conservative reforms will beat Al Gore.
John McCain. Character. Courage. For President.
|Background: In a release accompanying this
ad, McCain stated, "The people of South Carolina deserve to hear what their
presidential candidates believe and where they stand on the issues--not
the attack and respond cycle that has gripped this presidential campaign
over the past few weeks. I have ordered my
staff to take down our response ads, and I call on Governor Bush to do the same. This campaign must not contribute to the cynicism which has gripped this country and particularly our young people."
