his presidential bid to Texas Gov. George W. Bush in the March primary,
is scheduled to appear at a Rogan fund-raiser to be held in the area on
Rogan campaign manager Jason Roe is counting on McCain's support to
attract voters and dollars.
"McCain has great appeal among independents," he said. "It's going to
encourage independent voters to take a second look at Jim Rogan."
Todd Harris, a spokesman for McCain's political action committee, said
supporting Rogan is a priority for the Arizona senator.
"We have said all along that we will do everything we possibly can to
help Congressman Rogan," Harris said. "Senator McCain thinks he is an
outstanding member of Congress with unlimited potential."
Schiff claimed Rogan is appealing to people outside of his
constituency for help because he doesn't have a lot of local support.
"He's trying to bring in anybody who can bail him out," he said.
McCain has been asked to also hold a town hall meeting with Rogan but
it was uncertain Thursday whether he would.
