Here’s the transcript. McCain’s comment come at about 3:30 in the video.
Scott Pelley: You have called for the firing of the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the federal government organization that oversees the markets.
McCain: Yes. You know, and by the way, that technically he canâ€™t be, quote, fired. But Iâ€™ll tell you, when Iâ€™m president, if I want somebody to resign, they resign.
Pelley: Iâ€™m curious. If you wanna fire Chris Cox, the chairman of the SEC, who would you replace him with?
McCain: This may sound a little unusual, but Iâ€™ve admired Andrew Cuomo. I think he is somebody who could restore some credibility, lend some bipartisanship to this effort.
Pelley: Heâ€™s a Democrat.
McCain: Oh, yes.
Pelley: He served in the cabinet of President Clinton.
McCain: Yes. And he did a good job. And he has respect. And he has prestige.
