He didn’t say it outright, but did dip his toe in those waters, according to this morning’s pool report.
Speaking to Miami-based Radio Mambi, a force in the exile community, McCain said Fidel Castro has made his “preferences known in the campaign and had some very unkind things to say about me.”
To laughter, McCain said: “My feelings are hurt.”
Joe Lieberman, also in the studio, added:“You know, there’s an old expression, ‘you can judge a man by the enemies he’s made.”
McCain also got in a plug for the Diaz-Balart brothers, the two Cuban-American GOP congressman who backed the Arizona senator early on in the primary and are now fighting for their political lives in the Miami area.
“So I hope that my friends in the Cuban community will not only vote for me but Mario and Lincoln Diaz-Balart need your support as well,” McCain said. “I do not know two finer members of the United States Congress.”
