McCain and Romney Spar Over Florida

Romney is hitting McCain on the economic damage that would be caused by the McCain-Lieberman bill:
By our calculation, a family of four would have to spend about an extra $1,000 a year if McCain-Lieberman became law.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Martin reports Romney's team is making negative phone calls to voters, reminding them of McCain's ties to Democrats.

McCain's team sends out these five polls to demonstrate a late McCain surge in Florida (note how close this race really is):

Update:  Sen. McCain just issued the following statement:

“Mitt Romney's campaign is based on the wholesale deception of voters. On every one of the issues he has attacked John McCain on, Romney was for it before he was against it.  

“He was for campaign finance reform, and even proposed taxing political contributions. 

“He was for cap and trade, and even supported a tax that increased the price of gasoline at the pump.  

“He called our immigration bill ‘reasonable’ and ‘not amnesty.’ 

“The truth is, Mitt Romney was a liberal governor of Massachusetts who raised taxes, imposed with Ted Kennedy a big government mandate health care plan that is now a quarter of a billion dollars in the red, and managed his state's economy incompetently, leaving Massachusetts with less job growth than 47 other states.”

--Sen. John McCain
