The former Republican presidential candidate said that complaints from the Obama camp sought to distract from more substantive campaign issues.
"The fact that Mitt Romney didn't immediately repudiate what this woman said, fine," McCain said. "Nobody believes Mitt Romney thinks the president should be tried for treason. This is just the kind of thing that is going to go on and on and on which distracts from the president's national security failures and, of course, an economy that is still limping along."
Romney addressed the controversy with reporters after the town hall, clarifying he did not believe the president should be tried for treason.
"No, of course not," Romney said.
