If it’s Tuesday, this must be North Carolina
WINSTON-SALEM - Republican John McCain had a “where-am-I?” moment Tuesday during a busy day on the campaign trail.
“I appreciate the hospitality of the students and faculty of West Virginia,” McCain told the audience at Wake Forest University in North Carolina.
The audience laughed and McCain quickly corrected himself before launching in to a speech on judicial appointments.
With hectic campaign schedules that take them from town to town and state to state, the candidates sometimes stumble over where they are.
Campaigning in Wyoming in March, Barack Obama made a similar slip. Shaking hands and signing baseball caps at a diner, the Illinois senator said, “It’s really nice in Wisconsin,” and then added, “And Wyoming.”
