McCain Stumps In Louisville To Raise Campaign Funds

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Republican John McCain visited Louisville to raise money for his presidential campaign. The tally from his appearance was $2 million.

McCain criticized anew his Democratic challenger Barack Obama's withdrawal from the public financing system and said, "Senator Obama's word cannot be trusted."

The Arizona senator was at a closed to the public fundraiser at the Kentucky International Convention Center in downtown Louisville on Saturday evening.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell was also scheduled to attend the fundraiser.

The proceeds were reported to be split between McCain's campaign and the Kentucky Republican Party.

    AMNESTY IS COMING! AMNESTY IS COMING! You have read the newspapers? Either Senator Obama or McCain, once they step into the White House, are going to relentlessly push for a path to citizenship, for the estimated 30 million plus illegal aliens and families. It's going to cost you! Cost you dearly in even more government handouts! More than you ever suspected? You know the predator employers are not paying anything extra for their up-keep. All the little politicians, Governors, Mayors are all going to genuflect to the new potential voters. Like the Europe Union you will become the second class citizens, as new legalized immigrants get priority. It has happened in England and it's going to happen here! The Democrats are hiding from the federal SAVE ACT (H.R.4088), because it will add more ruthless power to the 1986 enforcement bill. Without the SAVE ACT, the consequences are unthinkable. Millions more patiently waiting in third world countries, will sweep down on us.
