DNC Gives Reporters McCain Convention 'Survival Kit'

ABC News' Jennifer Parker reports: In advance of the Republican National Convention next week in Minneapolis-St. Paul, the Democratic National Convention is giving reporters covering their convention in Denver a "survival kit."

ABC News has obtained the DNC's opposition kit. Inside an envelope labeled "DNC at the RNC: The McCain Files: A Survival Kit for Reporters," are press credentials to the Democratic Party's "More of the Same Media War Room" in St. Paul, a flash drive with their opposition research against Republican nominee John McCain, extra strength pain reliever, antacides, candy bars, and a button that reads "Ask me how many houses I own."

The packet also contains a McCain-themes crossword puzzle "to help you prepare, and pass the time, on the flight," reads a press release from the Democratic National Convention. Clues include "income levels that meet McCain's definition of rich."

"While you're there, we'll make sure you have everything you need to cut through the convention spin," the release reads.

On the flash drive is a black and white jpeg image of the John McCain - President George Bush  embrace during the 2004 campaign, six web attack ads against McCain, and "fact checks".
