Senator John McCain
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Republican John McCain is taking the blame for the weakened state of his presidential campaign.
McCain said today in an interview with New Hampshire Public Radio that he is responsible for a nearly broke campaign that has undergone two major staff shake-ups in a week.
Four days after accepting the resignations of his two top campaign aides, McCain says he didn't do what was necessary to run a productive campaign.
The campaign raised $25 million in the first half of the year, but blew through nearly all of it. Officials say the campaign will report by Sunday to the Federal Election Commission that it has two million dollars on hand and more than one million dollars in outstanding debt.
