Republican presidential candidate John McCain kicked off a tour Monday of some of America's poorest communities down south.
McCain visited the famous quilters in Gees Bend, Alabama and even bought three quilt.
These works of art have been displayed across the nation. McCain started the tour in Selma, Alabama where he recalled the brutal beatings of civil rights marchers on a bridge back in 1965.
"There must be no forgotten places in America where they have been ignored long years by the sins of indifference and injustice," said John McCain.
McCain's week long tour will hit Youngstown, Ohio, Kentucky, New Orleans and Little Rock, Arkansas.
