John McCain's Camp Says Barack Obama is Playing the 'Race Card'

July 31, 2008

(AP) - Republican John McCain says he's disappointed that Democratic rival Barack Obama claimed Republicans will try to scare voters by saying he doesn't look like previous presidents.

McCain told reporters today he agrees with his campaign manager Rick Davis, who said Obama was playing the race card.

McCain said, "I agree with it, and I'm disappointed that Senator Obama would say the things he's saying."

Obama said on Tuesday that President Bush and McCain have little to offer voters so Republicans will resort to a strategy of fear to keep the White House.

Obama's campaign said the comment was about experience, not about race.
