Warner Endorses McCain

February 26, 2007

Virginia Senator John Warner endorsed Arizona Senator John McCain Monday for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008.

In a statement, Warner cited McCain's service in the Navy and his familiarity with military issues for his endorsement.

McCain has not formally announced his candidacy.

Warner has agreed with McCain on a number of national security and defense issues, but differs with him on President Bush's Iraq war policy. McCain backs the president's plan to increase U-S troops while Warner drafted a bipartisan resolution opposing the build-up.

McCain said in his statement that the fifth-term senator's
support "means a great deal to me as a person, fellow senator and
veteran."
