McCain says money not that importantSubmitted by bedr1 on Wed, 10/03/2007 - 21:56
I sense something not right with McCain's comments - I am thinking he did less than 5 million. The only reason you say something like that is to dispell expectations.
CAMDEN, S.C. - Republican John McCain says he's "not overjoyed" by his recent fundraising but that it's not that big a deal.
"If money mattered, I think (Nelson) Rockefeller would be president — would have been president — of the United States," the Arizona senator said in an interview with The Associated Press Wednesday.
McCain said he wouldn't talk about financial details for the just-ended third quarter.
"Honestly I have no idea. They told me they're still opening mail," McCain said. "I don't have a final number yet, but I'm pleased with them — not overjoyed but pleased with them."
