Morning Update: National Security Threats

by campaign2008
October 30, 2008

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told a Florida crowd that national security dangers lurk and should not be ignored amid the financial crisis. He mentioned as one potential crisis “the success of the Iranian regime in its program of acquiring nuclear weapons,” which he said could threaten Israel or spark “an uncontrollable nuclear arms race across the region.”

Separately, McCain said Wednesday he would increase revenue from offshore drilling (AP) for Florida and other coastal states.
