While McCain’s support of the immigration bill — which was eventually voted down — appealed to many Hispanics, it infuriated some conservatives. McCain, his campaign then floundering, promised primary voters that he had “got the message,” vowed to prioritize enforcement and even claimed he wouldn’t have voted for his own bill it if was to have come up again.He succumbed to conservative panic
about a flood of Hispanics.
Now he contemplates voters of Latin descent
and wonders where their support for him went.
