Sen. John McCain: START Treaty Can Be Ratified This Year

His Arizona colleague, Sen. Jon Kyl, says the Senate can’t – and won’t – ratify the START Treaty in this lame-duck session of Congress, but Sen. John McCain told me on "GMA" that there is still hope.

“I believe we can move forward with the START treaty and satisfy Sen. Kyl’s concerns and mine about missile defense and others,” McCain said, adding that Democrats are addressing Kyl’s concerns in active negotiations.

An Administration official echoed McCain’s confidence after the interview. Stay tuned for more after today’s sit-down at the White House.
