Republican presidential candidate John McCain made a stop at the La Crosse Center on Friday morning for a rally with supporters.
In the face of continuing financial turmoil in the country, he dedicated portions of his speech to plans on fixing the economy. He again talked about a proposal to refinance mortgages, which he says is needed to help distressed homeowners stay in their homes.
McCain also talked about helping to boost retirement accounts that have been hit hard by the turmoil on Wall Street. He says investors need to be protected by easing restrictions on when retirement assets have to be sold off.
The rest of McCain's speech was largely dedicated to attacking his opponent, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
