Truck driver gets surprise meeting with McCain

| 9/17/2007

A Rock Hill, SC, truck driver recently had the opportunity to get up close and personal with Republican presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain.

According to the Rock Hill Herald, Ric Perkins lives across the street from the Rock Hill/York County Airport. Perkins was preparing for a jog, when his wife spotted McCain’s campaign bus near their home.

Perkins went out for a closer look and saw a jet touch down at the airport, which turned out to be McCain’s.

Somehow, Perkins managed to get close enough to McCain to talk to him. He decided to ask him about something that’s on the mind of many truck drivers these days – Mexican trucks.

McCain’s only response was to thank Perkins for taking an interest in his country, the Herald reported.
