An Ohio radio talk show host who gave a controversial warm-up speech at a John McCain rally says he's disappointed the Republican candidate is denouncing what he said.

Now Bill Cunningham says he'll support Hillary Rodham Clinton instead of McCain.

Cunningham repeatedly referred to Barack Obama by including his middle name, Hussein, and called the Illinois senator a "hack, Chicago-style" politician.

McCain later told reporters he wasn't in the building at the time of the speech, and apologized for the remarks.

Cunningham said later on his show that he's "had it" with McCain.
