McCain Rousts Sarasota Crowd


The line to get into John McCain's rally at Robarts Arena stretched a quarter-mile. People carried signs such as 'I'm Joe the Handyman' or 'I'm Joe the truck driver,' referring to the Ohio plumber who's become a symbol of middle-class American values. McCain told the 2,500 people that small business owners created 300,000 jobs last year, and it's no time to raise their taxes.
