Day, but admitted in 2008: "I was wrong and eventually realized that, in time to give full support [in 1990] for a state holiday in Arizona." He supported most aspects of the foreign policy of the Reagan administration, including its hardline stance against the Soviet Union and policy towards Central American conflicts, such as backing the Contras in Nicaragua. It's a wrong appearance when a group of senators appear in a meeting with a group of regulators, because it conveys the impression of undue and improper influence.
John Sidney Mc Cain III (born August 29, 1936) is an American politician serving as the senior United States Senator from Arizona, a seat he was first elected to in 1986.
He was the Republican nominee for President of the United States in the 2008 election, which he lost to Barack Obama. He became a naval aviator and flew ground-attack aircraft from aircraft carriers.
Mc Cain graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1958 and followed his father and grandfather—both four-star admirals—into the U. During the Vietnam War, he was almost killed in the 1967 USS Forrestal fire.
While Mc Cain was on a bombing mission over Hanoi in October 1967, he was shot down, seriously injured, and captured by the North Vietnamese. Mc Cain experienced episodes of torture and refused an out-of-sequence early repatriation offer.
Since January 1993, Mc Cain has been Chairman of the International Republican Institute, an organization partly funded by the U. government that supports the emergence of political democracy worldwide. He would later explain that "under our Constitution, it is the president's call to make." Mc Cain attacked what he saw as the corrupting influence of large political contributions—from corporations, labor unions, other organizations, and wealthy individuals—and he made this his signature issue.
