Meghan McCain, the daughter of Republican Senator John McCain, said in an interview with ABC and Yahoo News that her father “was ‘frustrated’ and ‘depressed’ by the Tea Party.” Meghan described the Tea Party as the ‘hyper-conservative wing” of the Republican Party.

John McCain’s daughter went on to say:

“He is so depressed. He is so downtrodden. The way he’s talking about it, how he’s never seen it this bad in his 30-plus years in office.” She then complained about her father having to run “another dirty tea party election,” saying that the prospect of a primary challenge could encourage her father to drop out.
