In Wednesday noontime press call, McCain says Gingrich “dramatically expanded” earmarks while topping the House and hits Newt for his Freddie contract.

Arizonan: “I don’t think that historians are well enough paid but I’m impressed that a historian would be paid by Freddie Mac some $25,000 a month.”

Mack crashes another Newt event: “You have Speaker Gingrich who talks about transparency but has an eight year relationship with Freddie Mac.”
