Cell coverage for Cindy McCain

October 16, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

John McCain, a senior member of the Senate committee that oversees the telecom industry, now has cellphone coverage at the family's ranch near Sedona, after a request from his wife, Cindy, early in 2007, the Washington Post reported.

Verizon Wireless and AT&T provide the coverage at the ranch, which is in a remote canyon where reception is difficult.

McCain is a senior member and former chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, which oversees the Federal Communications Commission and the telecommunications industry.

"This story is a disgrace," said McCain campaign spokesman Brian Rogers. "The McCains went through the process that is available to anybody who subscribes to one of these cellphone companies to inquire about getting service."
