Washington (AP) -- What had been a behind-the-scenes dispute between GOP Presidential Candidates John McCain and Mitt Romney has gained more of the spotlight.
The Arizona Senator has criticized the former Massachusetts Governor for flip-flopping on immigration. McCain suggested sarcastically that Romney’s solution would be to "get out his small varmint gun and drive those Guatemalans off his lawn."
McCain was referring to Romney’s description of the type of hunting he does in defending his sudden membership in the National Rifle Association.
Romney's campaign dismissed McCain’s remarks by saying they showed a candidate on the ropes over a politically volatile issue.
