McCain to renew focus on the economy

Over at Politico, Mike Allen is reporting that the McCain campaign will announce additional economic measures in the coming days in an attempt to steal the economic focus from Barack Obama.

"At a meeting at HQ today, Senator McCain and his inner circle will consider additional economic measures aimed directly at the middle class for rollout this week. Among the measures being considered are tax cuts — perhaps temporary — for capital gains and dividends. “The market’s the focus,” a McCain adviser said. “You want to stop the fleeing.” No more bailout money is being contemplated. “We’ve written a check to everyone in sight,” the adviser said. “We’re not in that game.” More than 30 ideas are on the table, and he’ll decide which ones, and when. “That’s up to McCain,” one official said."
