Another person at a rally in Minnesota stated, "I don't trust Obama. I have read about him and he's an Arab". McCain shook his head and said, "No ma'am, no ma'am. He's a decent family man... [a] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues. That's what this campaign is all about."
McCain told the people at the rally to be respectful.
Republican presidential administrations feel that the rallies will eventually lead to violence. This is something that the candidates need to calm down in their rallies before violence stirs up.
