Sen. McCain: Veterans angry over handling of Benghazi, could sway election

On "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien" this morning, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) says veterans who are angry over handling of U.S. Consulate attack in Benghazi could sway the election.

"I've been travelling all over the country," Sen. McCain says. "Veterans are angry. They're angry, they're upset. They don't trust Barack Obama. There's 1.6 million of them in Florida, for example. I think they could have an impact on this election. I know it's all about jobs and the economy, but I have never seen veterans as upset and angry as they are over Benghazi.
