McCain Talks with Auto Workers About Economic Woes

July 18, 2008

(AP) - John McCain is promising workers at a General Motors plant he wants to help make the company's long-range electric car succeed.

McCain traveled to a Detroit suburb for a town hall meeting with auto workers that focused on the economy. It's an issue that polls suggest Americans feel Barack Obama handles better, and today's meeting comes at the end of a week in which GM announced more cutbacks amid a drop in truck sales.

McCain says he wants to do what he can to make the Chevy Volt, a long-range electric car due in 2010, become a success.

McCain is also pushing a boost for struggling homeowners, saying the government should give people who need it access to fixed-rate lending so they can keep their homes.
