CNN's King on McCain's troubles in Ohio
Reporters talking amongst themselves:
From CNN last night: Campbell Brown interviews reporter John King.
KING: Well, one of the questions about George W. Bush versus John McCain is, George W. Bush had all those Christian right voters. Will they stand with John McCain? Many of them don't have that same feel for him ...
One last state, no Republican has ever won the White House without carrying Ohio. George W. Bush did it. But again, look at that, just barely. A big industrial state, a must-win for the Republicans. The economy is in trouble out here. It's a problem.
The State Republican Party is in shambles out here. That's a problem. And remember, John McCain picked that fight with the radio talk show host down in Cincinnati here. He has troubles with the Republican Party down here with Christian conservatives, with radio talk show hosts.
KING: Ohio is a must-win state for John McCain, and if he's looking at it right now, he knows he has some work to do.
BROWN: All right. John King, mapping it out for us. John, thanks.
KING: Thank you.
