McCain hangs on as Clinton aims at winning Arizona

  |   World News

Sen. John McCain is already thinking about life after Donald J. Trump. The Arizona Republican turned a recent question about millennial farmers into a soul-searching answer about the Republican Party’s future once, presumably, Trump loses the presidential election. “Speaking as a proud Republican, we’re going to have to look at our party and look at how we can get back to the party of Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan used to say if a fella agrees with me 80 percent of the time, then I’m with him,” McCain told leaders of the Arizona Farm Bureau. He lamented the purist ideological approach many conservatives now apply. “You’ve gotta be 110 percent otherwise you’re out. We’ve got to be a big tent party,” McCain said.
