McCain addressed the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance via satellite last night after canceling his trip to Ohio to stay in D.C., where he said he would work on the bailout legislation in Congress. But he didn't visit the Hill yesterday and did all his senatorial work on the legislation over the phone from his headquarters in Arlington, Va.
After apologizing for his absence, McCain went after Obama on his record on gun control and support for hunters and fishermen. This included a hit on a survey Obama filled out as a state senator and his "bitter" comments in San Francisco.
He also made a brief reference to the debate Friday and played the McCain campaign's talking point about Obama not mentioning the word "victory" once.
Obama was campaigning in North Carolina and Virginia yesterday.
