Republican Says Presidential Race Isn't Over Yet

October 22, 2008

(AP) John McCain says some polls may show his opponent is ahead, but he says indicators show his campaign is "coming up."

McCain spoke Wednesday morning on the "Imus in the Morning" radio
show. He admits he may be an underdog candidate, but says Barack Obama's lead appears to be within the margin of error.

Overall, the Arizona senator tells Imus he feels "very confident" and says his campaign is "doing fine." He says they'll continue working hard and "having fun." McCain says that goes for running mate Sarah Palin too.

He says, "We understand what a tough battle we have and she
understands it better than anybody."

McCain is campaigning Wednesday in New Hampshire, before heading to Ohio for two rallies with Palin. Next stops will include Florida, where Obama also is ahead in the polls.
