The Trifecta: McCain Inserts Himself Into GOP Contest

The battle for the Republican nomination went from a "police action" to a full-scale war. One one side we have the Romney camp who insists that he's a conservative, while Rudy's side argues he's the best general election candidate. This weekend, John McCain decided to large a two-front attack on Romney and Giuliani.

Campaigning in New Hampshire McCain, attacking Romney, said "As we all know, when he ran for office in Massachusetts, being a Republican wasn’t much of a priority for him." The Arizona Senator went on to criticize Giuliani's fiscal and social stances and said that he, McCain, is the candidate who represents "Republican wing of the Republican Party."
