GOP presidential candidate John McCain is inviting his Democratic rival, Barack Obama, to participate in a joint town hall at an open-borders advocacy group’s upcoming meeting in California.

“There is a meeting in California of La Raza,” McCain told reporters at an Arlington press conference Monday. “Both of us have accepted invitations. I say that we have a town hall meeting together in front of La Raza. I think that the people will be far more informed and in some ways, entertained if we had that format.”

More details in my story HERE.

Off topic, but probably on a brighter note to our Townhall readers, McCain will make a formal push to lift oil moratoriums tomorrow.

"I will call for lifting the federal moratorium for states that choose to permit exploration," he said. "I think that this, and perhaps providing additional incentives for states to permit exploration off of their coasts, would be very helpful in the short term in resolving our energy crisis."

I'll post a full story after he does this tomorrow.
