McCain calls into Butler County GOP hqs
Amber Ellis reports:
Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain called into Butler County Republican Party headquarters Tuesday night, thanking members for their ongoing support.
The call came at about 9 p.m. – the time results were supposed to be released statewide after delays in northern Ohio – and lasted about five minutes.
"Now the real campaign is going to begin," McCain said to the group of about 30 people who met in a conference room at Hamilton headquarters.
McCain said he’d talk about his strategy more in the days to come. For tonight, he said he was going to savor his victories and his recently confirmed Republican nomination. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee conceded the race to McCain moments ago.
Results from Ohio and Texas will likely determine whether McCain will face Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, or Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, in November.
