McCain Tours Poverty Stricken Communities

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Republican John McCain says he can relate to the hard-hit steel towns.

He's set to tell an Ohio audience that their communities can rebound like his own presidential campaign did last year.

Once out of money and losing staff, McCain went on to win New Hampshire and is now the presumptive Republican nominee.

He's appearing today at Youngstown State University. He's on a week-long tour of communities that he says are suffering not just from poverty, but from inattention from presidential candidates.

McCain's prepared remarks say troubled communities can be turned around by what he calls pro-growth policies and an honest and efficient federal government.

He was in Alabama yesterday.
