John McCain shunned tradition today by grabbing media attention during his opponent's convention kick-off, Politico reports. At a high school in Phoenix, McCain trotted out supporter and reggaeton star Daddy Yankee. McCain "has been a fighter for the Hispanic community… a fighter for immigration," Daddy Yankee told students at the 75% Latino school.
McCain will later stop by The Tonight Show and then hit up celebrities for cash at a Los Angeles fundraiser. Notable guests at the $500, Beverly Hilton event include Jon Voight and Robert Duvall. Such stars are planning to boost McCain's media attention and attend the GOP convention next month, Variety reports.
