John McCain endorsed a proposal to scrap affirmative action in his home state of Arizona, sparking a strong rebuke from presidential rival Barack Obama and the Rev. Al Sharpton.

When asked yesterday in an interview that aired on ABC’s “This Week” whether he supports a ballot referendum that would eliminate affirmative action, McCain replied, “Yes, I do.”

“I do not believe in quotas,” McCain said. “I have not seen the details of some of these proposals. But I’ve always opposed quotas.”
