Sen. Landrieu Sinks McCain's Foreign Catfish Campaign
As he has done plenty of times before, U.S. Sen. John McCain is standing up for catfish farmers from...Vietnam. The one-time presidential candidate and Vietnam war vet continued his crusade to stave off a trade war with the Southeast Asian countries during last week's Farm Bill debate.
