Sen. John McCain: I Can't Vote for Trump or Clinton

His opponent, Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., seized on the opportunity to paint McCain as a hypocrite



    Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain talks with debate moderators prior to his debate with Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, their only scheduled debate before next month's general election, Monday, Oct. 10, 2016, in Phoenix.

    Sen. John McCain said he might write in his "old, good friend" Sen. Lindsey Graham for president when he casts his ballot next month, because he can't bring himself to vote for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

    McCain was asked about his shifting position on Trump's candidacy as he sparred with his Democratic challenger for Arizona's U.S. Senate seat during their first debate Monday night.

    McCain was asked why, after Trump's many controversies and personal attacks, including on himself, he hadn't withdrawn his endorsement until this weekend when a 2005 video surfaced of Trump bragging about groping women.
