McCain Congratulates Obama In New Ad

The McCain campaign today released a new ad, "Convention Night," in which John McCain directly congratulates Barack Obama on becoming the Democratic presidential nominee.

"Senator Obama, this is truly a good day for America," McCain says in the spot, speaking directly to the camera. "Too often the achievements of our opponents go unnoticed. So I wanted to stop and say, congratulations. How perfect that your nomination would come on this historic day. Tomorrow, we'll be back at it. But tonight Senator, job well done."
