McCain To Visit Iraq
November 20, 2007, 10:38 AM
Republican presidential candidate John McCain won't be home this Thanksgiving.
His campaign says the Arizona senator will be in Iraq, visiting the troops. It's McCain's seventh trip to the region. He'll be joined by at least one other senator. Connecticut Independent Joe Lieberman, one of the staunchest supporters of the war, is also making the trip.
McCain, a former Navy pilot who was held as a prisoner in Vietnam, has been highlighting his support for a troop increase in Iraq. It's become a leading theme of his presidential campaign.
