McCain: I'll Filibuster DADT Repeal


Sen. John McCain said over the weekend that he would filibuster any attempt to repeal "don't ask, don't tell" in the lame-duck session after the November midterm election.

According to The Huffington Post, McCain spoke in a pretaped interview for Sunday Square-Off on Arizona's Channel 12.

"When asked how far he would go to prevent an attempt to repeal the controversial policy from being approved in the upper congressional chamber, McCain responded by saying, 'Absolutely I will filibuster or stop it from being brought up until we have a thorough and complete study on the effect of morale and battle effectiveness.'"

McCain, who is up for reelection this year, leads Democratic challenger Rodney Glassman in polls. He notes that if he wins, and Republicans win a Senate majority, he would become the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
