    Democratic Rep. Chris Carney received a phone call Wednesday from Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) asking him to consider becoming a Republican, a top GOP official told POLITICO.


    A spokesman for Carney declined to say if the congressman was considering such a switch…


    A top House Republican aide, wanting to avoid revealing a poaching patrol, downplayed the effort.


    “You’ve got to have a willing partner; you don’t just hunt these guys down,” said the Republican. “They have to nudge you first.”


    But the aide acknowledged that they had gotten “a nibble” from Carney and were now making the pitch that he’d be better off switching parties than running again as a Democrat in a northeastern Pennsylvania seat that President Obama lost by 9 percentage points last year.
