McCain has fences to mend in home state
    Phoenix -- Sen. John McCain's run for the presidency is gaining momentum across the nation, but the campaign is meeting disapproval in one of the most unlikely places: his home turf in Arizona.
    In a straw poll vote two weeks ago of 721 Republican leaders in Maricopa County, the major population center of the state, a majority ranked McCain as the least acceptable Republican candidate for president.
    The reason, Republicans say, is his record on illegal immigration.
    "We feel betrayed and let down by our senior senator," said Russell Pearce, a Republican representative in the statehouse who has written a number of tough laws against illegal immigrants.
