McCain plays up underdog status


He held a rally in Concord over the weekend.

/*McCain*/ is trying to use his role as underdog to his advantage. At a rally in Ohio Sunday, the Arizona Senator said even though he's down in the polls, he's still the right candidate for the White House.

"Senator Obama is already measuring the drapes and planning with Speaker Pelosi and Senator Ried to raise taxes and increase spending and concede defeat in Iraq," McCain said.

No republican candidate in recent history has won the presidential election without winning Ohio.

Polls indicate a tight race in that state.
