    11/08/2000

    Hamlet, North Carolina—Sharkman joined CSE activists Monday at a rally for U.S. Rep. Robin Hayes that included Senator John McCain, Rep. Lindsay Graham (MI) and Rep. Tom Davis (VA). Sharkman was recognized from the stage by both Robin Hayes and John McCain at the 250-participant rally. “We’re glad to have Citizens for a Sound Economy and Sharkman with us here today,” said Rep. Hayes. McCain said “There’s Sharkman! I tell you, he followed me all over New Hampshire and I’m always glad to see him.” The moment even got emotional when Senator McCain approached Sharkman and tenderly confessed “Sharkman, I love you.”
