Senator John McCain Warns Republican Presidential Candidates To End The Personal Attacks

Sen. John McCain, former GOP presidential candidate, warned Republicans about personal attacks by stating “I think we’re hurting our chances to win the general election if we disparage each other and impugn the character of each other. Then after the primary is over, then obviously there’s a trust and support deficit among the American people."

On CNN's "State of the Union," McCain shared “I wish we would think about Ronald Reagan and the way he conducted his campaigns. We can fight like blazes where we disagree but to impugn each other’s characters and integrity is very harmful to each other, ourselves and our chances of winning a general election."

Donald Trump has repeatedly gone after Jeb Bush and Jeb Bush has stated that Rubio lacks leadership skills. Last week, Sen. Rand Paul told "Kilmeade & Friends" that Sen. Ted Cruz “He is pretty much done for and stifled and it’s really because of personal relationships or lack of personal relationships."

McCain added “I sense a great dissatisfaction with Washington here in Arizona but I also hear a lot of dissatisfaction with one the issues being discussed which are not particularly relevant and two the person attacks being made and I’m afraid we’ll pay a price for it at the polls and I hope we’ll change."
