Log Cabin raises $40,000 for McCain

By Associated Press, 12/24/1999

PHOENIX - John McCain has collected roughly $40,000 in contributions for his GOP presidential campaign from members of a gay Republican group, despite his disagreement with their views on some issues important to gays. But McCain campaign spokesman Dan Schnur said yesterday that the Arizona senator and the Log Cabin Republicans agree on other issues, such as taxes, school choice, and the military, and that it is not inconsistent for him to accept their contributions. McCain's campaign manager, Rick Davis, addressed members of the Log Cabin Republicans simultaneously by satellite at fund-raisers in Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington on Dec. 14, the Arizona Republic reported yesterday. The event raised about $40,000, the paper said. (AP)
