McCain runs new ad in Colorado

WASHINGTON – John McCain is going up on the air in battleground states with a new campaign commercial in which he says: “I’m running for president to keep the country I love safe.”

The Republican presidential candidate, who has been running advertisements in key states since late March, will start running the new ad Friday and Saturday in Iowa, Michigan, Colorado, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.

“Only a fool or a fraud talks tough or romantically about war,” McCain says in the ad. “I was shot down over Vietnam and spent five years as a POW. Some of the friends I served with never came home. I hate war. And I know how terrible its costs are.”
