Undated (AP) Democrat Barack Obama is zeroing in on republican presidential candidate John McCain.
Obama plans to spend a second day meeting voters in Florida, where yesterday he questioned McCain's reputation for ethics. Obama says McCain has lost faith with his own good-government principles, hiring “some of the biggest lobbyists in Washington to run his campaign.”
Obama's democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, campaigned in Florida yesterday but plans to be in Washington today. She's hinting that she may take her fight for the nomination all the way to the Democratic Convention floor.
McCain is in California today. A spokesman answering Obama's criticism says the Illinois democrat hasn't disclosed the list of lobbyists advising his campaign. The spokesman suggests Obama could be hiding something.
McCain recently instituted a new no-lobbyist policy for his campaign staff, forcing some top aides to quit.
