Stop the presses! Arizona Sen. John McCain and his former Presidential running mate actually agree on Sunday.
McCain is saying on ABC’s Good Morning America” that he agrees with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin‘s belief that Republican congressional candidates will suffer at the polls if they stray from the tea party’s anti-spending, anti-tax message.
McCain says Republicans should heed the tea party messages that connect with voters.
McCain warned that Republicans”betrayed our base, particularly in the area of fiscal responsibility” after they gained control of Congress in 1994 and voters turned away from the party in the following elections.
“What Sarah is saying is, ‘We’ve got to get fiscally responsible Republicans in, ‘ ” McCain said.
