Earlier today, Fortune released an article on Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), in which McCainâ€™s chief strategist, Charlie Black, said that another terrorist attack on U.S. soil â€œ would be a big advantageâ€ for McCain. Asked to respond to Blackâ€™s quote during a press conference in Fresno, CA, McCain rejected it: â€œIf he said that, and I do not know the context, I strenuously disagree.â€
Update: In a statement to TPM, McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds said Black " deeply regrets his comments," adding that they were "inappropriate."
