McCain says states deserve more offshore oil money

MIAMI - October 29, 2008 McCain says that such an incentive would increase energy production and help consumers struggling with gasoline prices by leaving the decision to the states but giving them a reason to act.

In a campaign appearance Wednesday in Miami's Little Havana, McCain renewed his call for additional drilling offshore.

McCain is spending the day in Florida contesting that state's 27 electoral votes, a crucial battleground in next week's election.

After his Miami rally, McCain is planning to meet with military leaders in Tampa to talk about national security issues.
