GREENVILLE, South Carolina (CNN) - Sen. John McCain said Tuesday that he's "not surprised" Mitt Romney has a new television ad in Iowa attacking Mike Huckabee's record on illegal immigration.
McCain was asked about the ad by reporters after speaking to the Greenville Rotary Club.
"I didn't know, but I'm not surprised," he said. "I wish we could talk about our own qualifications and vision rather than attacking other candidates, which apparently the Romney campaign is now seems to be doing quite frequently. I don't think it helps. I think the ultimate result is that we get low voter turnout and that's the opposite of what we all want."
