WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Republican presidential nominee John McCain is getting a new set of wheels.
The Arizona senator said on his Twitter feed Monday that he was buying a new Ford Fusion Hybrid. His office says he's getting the 2010 hybrid in silver and was impressed by its fuel-efficiency.
The hybrid gets 41 miles per gallon in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. McCain's spokeswoman says the senator was "sold when he left the parking lot."
McCain is replacing his Cadillac CTS, which he has used to drive around Washington, D.C.
APPARENTLY the "Straight Talk Express" isn't good enough anymore.
