McCain to attend debate, Web ad claims victory already
WASHINGTON – Ah the Internet world, a place where things move very quickly — maybe too quickly in the political world.
Before Republican presidential hopeful John McCain announced he would attend the presidential debate on Friday night in Mississippi, apparently an Internet advertisement slipped out onto the Wall Street Journal’s opinion page with it declaring he won the contest.
McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said the ad posting was a mistake by the Wall Street Journal. Oops.
