Republican presidential candidate John McCain is telling his conservative critics to cool off on the animosity and focus on issues where they agree.
The Arizona senator is taking a break from campaigning to return to Washington, a day after forging ahead as the Republican party's presidential frontrunner in Tuesday's primaries.
His comments are aimed at some well-known personalities like talk show host Rush Limbaugh and commentator Ann Coulter, some of whom said they would boycott McCain if he wins the party's nomination.
Some conservatives object to McCain's position on immigration, saying his proposal on the issue is equal to amnesty. And some oppose his call to limit money in politics a violation of free speech.
McCain says he's going to reach out to his critics and that they should unite around issues where they agree, and "respectfully disagree on a few specific issues."
He plans to address a group of conservatives Thursday in Washington.
