Democratic group files complaint against McCain

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee asked regulators Wednesday to investigate Sen. John McCain for alleged campaign finance violations. They claim his campaign illegally paid for ads advocating for two Republican candidates in southern Arizona.

The group says McCain illegally coordinated with the campaigns of Ruth McClung and Jesse Kelly. McClung is trying to unseat Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva while Kelly is challenging Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

The McCain campaign says it didn’t coordinate with the campaigns. It says the $92,000 spent on each ad was an independent expenditure that was allowed under the rules and disclosed to the secretary of the Senate.

The group asked the Federal Election Commission for an investigation.
