Meghan McCain ‘disillusioned’ with Republican Party

CORRECTS DATE OF PHOTO TO APRIL 16, 2016, INSTEAD OF SEPT. 16, 2014 - This selfie photo made by Jonathan Annicks on April 16, 2016, shows him with his godfather, William Johnson, at Chicago's Mount Sinai Hospital, where Annicks was first treated for a gunshot wound. A veteran Chicago police detective, Johnson was not there for work but to offer comfort. Johnson has investigated hundreds of shootings over the years, many of the victims gang members. This was different. This was Jonathan, the kid who'd never been in trouble, the kid who whipped him in floor hockey and joined Johnson's family at beach outings every Labor Day.

When it comes to the Republican Party, Meghan McCain is not impressed.

“It doesn’t seem like its changing that much, to me; maybe not fast enough,” she told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR’s Mac & Gaydos on Wednesday.

McCain is often seen as a progressive Republican, one who strays from the party’s traditional ideals. She is a vocal supporter of gay marriage, something she said she has been called a “heretic” for supporting.

“I think we live in a time where it’s not a big deal to come out of the closet anymore, at least in my world,” she said.

McCain also said she supports her father, Sen. John McCain, in in his work with immigration with the Gang of Eight. While she feels that many Arizonans back her father, the nation does not.

“For every person that agrees with him — and I think a majority of people in this state agree with him — there’s a lot of people tweeting me that it’s amnesty and, you know, all the racist stuff people say on Twitter.”
