FEC Poses Fresh Problem for McCain

The US Federal Election Commission has put a spanner in the works as far as John McCain is concerned. He recently criticised Barack Obama over spending, but now it appears he could be tied up in regulation detail that will cause him trouble indeed.

The Washington Post blog has a good explanation of the problem he may face. Politics is never easy at the best of times, but McCain has made a stand on certain issues. If these unravel in front of him, he may look vulnerable.

He is also being challenged in the press concerning the reliabilty of his assertions over lobbyists. The Guardian/Observer says - "Whiff of scandal envelops McCain's campaign - The Republican frontrunner faces fresh allegations over lobbyist links" - and it looks like something people are right to question.

Could it become a two-horse race yet?
