McCain is optimistic for the weekend report.
“The weather is looking nice we seem to have sold a lot of tickets and shirts,” McCain stated. “I anticipate this year will be a great success. The courthouse clocks are green. The mayors flying a green city of Rushville flag at City Hall. What could go wrong?”
