Candid about candidate son’s disconnect from GOP base
“How much support do you think he has among the base of the Republican Party?” C-SPAN’s Steve Scully asked John McCain’s mother in an interview set to air Sunday.
“I don’t think he has any,” said Mother McCain. “I don’t know what the base of the Repub–maybe I don’t know enough about it, but I’ve not seen any help whatsoever.”
Asked if her son can go on to be the GOP’s nominee, Roberta McCain said, “Yes, I think holding their nose they’re going to have to take him.”
