McCain leaves the White House Wednesday after a discussion on Iraq.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Newly installed McCain campaign manager Rick Davis is out with his first e-mail fundraising solicitation Wednesday, writing that Sen. John McCain is embracing the themes of his 2000 presidential campaign “louder than ever.”
“When I last held this post in 2000, our campaign for honest reform, better government and a stronger America had resonated with voters across the country, and our message today is stronger and louder than ever,” Davis wrote in the e-mail. “America is at an important crossroad, and I have accepted this position because I firmly believe that John McCain is the right man with the right message at the right time for America.”
Davis, who ran the Arizona Republican’s insurgent presidential bid in 2000, returned to the post Tuesday after former campaign manager Terry Nelson was forced out following bleak fundraising totals and excessive spending.
Clearly hoping to combat talk of a campaign in crisis, Davis also asks supporters to “send this email to five of your friends and let them know that our campaign for honest reform, better government and a stronger America is moving forward.”
