Man of the People: The Maverick Life and Career of John McCain

By Paul Alexander | Go to book overview

Chapter 11
Man of the People

“I realized when we were about to organize for the new session,” says Senator Thad Cochran, a Republican from Mississippi, “that John needed another vote for campaign finance reform. He had 59 votes to invoke closure to get the bill to the floor, to the motion to proceed to consider the bill, and I thought, ‘If we are going to be able to write a bill that is fair to both parties and also the interests that are going to be reflected in the Congress, what better time than when you have 50 Republicans and 50 Democrats.’ While I didn’t agree with everything in McCain-Feingold, I did agree that we needed to start. So I walked up to John while we were at an organizational luncheon, sat down, and told him just what I thought. I could tell by the expression that he was ecstatic. He was really fired up over the fact that I would be willing to get on board.”
