McCain Conference Call Audio

The McCain campaign held a conference call with North Carolina's Republican Sen Richard Burr and Senior Policy Advisor Doug Holtz-Eakin to criticize Obama's North Carolina economic speech this afternoon.

The audio is up HERE if you want to listen.

Highlights include a shot at Obama's "vetter" Jim Johnson from Holtz-Eakin: "And I thought it was remarkable that Senator Obama could talk about housing, talk about ethics, and fail to mention that he entrusted the single most important decision in his campaign, the choice of the vice presidential running mate, to a gentlemen, Mr. Johnson, who benefitted from preferential lending at Countrywide and state financial payouts from that company and is thoroughly entangled in the sub-prime housing mess that Senator McCain has made proposals to address and which is plaguing so many American families."
