In an interview with the Yale Daily News on Sunday, Rep. Chris Shays (R-CT) declared that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) “has lost his brand as a maverick” and “did not live up to his pledge to fight a clean campaign.” Shays, who is the Connecticut co-chair of McCain’s campaign, “laid much of the blame on the far right” of the conservative movement, claiming that they have “hijacked” the Republican party. The AP points out that Shays joins a growing list of conservatives who are breaking from McCain.
