ANCHORAGE, Alaska (CNN) — Republican presidential candidate John McCain criticized two his future running mate’s hometown projects in broadsides in 2001 against congressional “pork-barrel” spending, records from the Arizona senator’s office show.

McCain and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin have put attacks on what they call excessive spending at the heart of this year’s Republican presidential campaign. But when Palin served as mayor of her hometown of Wasilla, outside Anchorage, she obtained about $27 million in federal “earmarks” during her last four years in office, according to the watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense.
