Senator John McCain (R-AZ) "today made the following statement regarding the planned location of a mosque in close proximity to Ground Zero," according to a press release.
“I oppose the planned location of a mosque in close proximity to Ground Zero. The concerns of the 9/11 victims’ families and the citizens of New York City should be respected. I would hope that all the parties would sit down and discuss an alternative location for the mosque that would meet with the approval of the people of New York City and the victims’ families.”
