John McCain (R-AZ) is best friends with fellow Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
However, McCain's Mr. Purpura is ALSO currently serving as the Assistant Treasurer for presidential rival Jeb Bush's campaign corporation.
|(from Breitbart.com, possibly from AP)|
Brian Rogers, McCain's Communications Director, tells Arizona's Politics that "there's no conflict there at all". "Sal has worked in treasury operations for Senator McCain's campaign committees for many years, going back to his last presidential campaign. Sal got his start in politics working for Governor Bush, and worked on three of his campaigns."
* Arizona's Politics digitally-stumbled upon this information while attempting to find a McCain campaign press person to ask questions about another subject. McCain had not yet hired a campaign spokesperson. Arizona's Politics has reached out for comment to the new Communications Director for the campaign, and will supplement this article as warranted.
