ANKENY, Iowa (AP) -- The finger-pointing is just beginning over who's to blame for the deadly Minneapolis bridge collapse.
Arizona Senator John McCain jumped in Saturday, saying part of the responsibility may lie with Congress. He accuses lawmakers of diverting billions of dollars in transportation money from road work to their own pet projects.
McCain made the comments during a town hall-style meeting in Iowa.
Saturday's swing was McCain's first public campaign event in Iowa since he slashed deeply into his campaign staff because of money troubles.
