Granger calls out McCain over F-35 joint strike fighter  Read more: http://www.star-telegram.com/2011/09/02/3333638/granger-calls-out-mccain-over.html#ixzz1dinRg2erRep. Kay Granger, R-Fort Worth, called Friday for increased production of the F-35 joint strike fighter and suggested that its critics, namely Sen. John McCain, visit the mile-long factory on the city's west side before continuing to push for cuts in the Defense Department's largest weapons program.


Granger made her remarks after a morning tour of the facility with Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., whose district includes Eglin Air Force Base, where F-35 pilots are trained. Both said that when Congress reconvenes next week, members should consider the nation's security goals before cutting into defense programs.


Granger's offensive followed Texas Sen. John Cornyn's letter last month to Ashton Carter, who is in line to become the Pentagon's No. 2 official, urging Carter to support the F-35 more strongly. Carter's appointment as deputy secretary. of defense must be confirmed by the Senate this month.
