Gandolfini scrubs McCain appearance
Oct 12,2007 00:00 by UPI
NEW YORK -- John McCain is holding a fund-raiser in New York without the advertised celebrity guest, “Sopranos” star James Gandolfini.

The actor had to bow out of the Oct. 30 event due to scheduling problems that arose after the invitations were sent out, the New York Post said Friday.

A source in the McCain camp told the Post that Gandolfini and the Republican presidential hopeful had dinner together recently and “have respect for each other.”
