McCain says 'it's over' for special interests

CEDARBURG, Wis. (AP) -- John McCain and Sarah Palin have hit the campaign trail after the GOP convention in an effort to cast the Republican ticket as a team of determined reformers eager to bring change to Washington.

In Wisconsin today, McCain declared "it's over" for the special interests. Meanwhile, Palin told supporters at the rally that her running mate "doesn't run with the Washington herd."

The Arizona senator and Alaska governor were greeted by a crowd of about 1,000 in the town of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, north of Milwaukee.

McCain and Palin are teaming up for a weekend of events in battleground states. They're also slated to be in Michigan today. Tomorrow, they head to Colorado and New Mexico. Palin is expected to briefly return to Alaska before hitting the road on her own, possibly Monday.
