McCain Urges Obama to Hold Joint Town Hall Meetings

(AP) - John McCain is challenging Barack Obama to join him in 10 town hall meetings with voters between now and the Democratic National Convention in August.

McCain, the Republican nominee-in-waiting, sent his Democratic
rival a letter today outlining the offer. He suggested the first
town hall be held June 12th in New York.

He said President Kennedy had made such an agreement with former
Senator Barry Goldwater for the 1964 election before Kennedy's
assassination.

"I don't think we need any big media-run production, no process
question from reporters, no spin rooms," McCain said. "Just two
Americans running for office in the greatest nation on earth,
responding to the questions of the people whose trust we must
earn."
