McCain camp touts Wisconsin delegate's defection

Debra Bartoshevich, a Wisconsin delegate to the national convention for Hillary Clinton, is mentioned in a new release from John McCain's campaign touting what it calls a "group of prominent Democratic and unaffiliated leaders and activists who have joined 'Citizens for McCain.'"

Bartoshevich told a newspaper Friday that she planned to vote for McCain this fall, even though she's a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in Denver later this summer.

The state party said it will file a complaint with the DNC seeking to revoke her status, saying her support of McCain breaks party rules for delegates.

Bartoshevich has not returned calls from WisPolitics this weekend. But she told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that she was unhappy with the way Clinton was treated during the primary and has reservations about Obama's lack of experience.

"I just feel you need to have somebody who has experience with foreign matters," she told the paper.
