ProgressNow Flies Anti-McCain Banner At Broncos Game
With the hard-hitting charge that Sen. John McCain is a "Raiders fan," even though the game is against the Miami Dolphins:
It seems there's no escape from politics this year, not even on the football field. A plane pulling a banner saying "McCain is a Raiders Fan" flew over Invesco Field on Sunday as fans gathered for the Denver Broncos-Miami Dolphins game.More--photos and a ProgressNow press release.
The liberal group ProgressNow hired the plane after hearing about the plans of McCain supporters to hold a "hibachi tailgate" party in one of the stadium's parking lots.
They planned to hand out "Joe the Plumber" stickers and other campaign materials. The Raiders are longtime rivals of the Denver Broncos.
Invesco Field is where Barack Obama gave his speech accepting the Democratic presidential nomination during the party's national convention in August.
