Congressman Cantor Endorses McCain

February 8, 2008

U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign announced Friday that Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) has endorsed John McCain for president.

"John McCain is about honor, duty and country above all else. He is a war hero and brings a unique understanding of the threat posed by the terrorists and the spread of radical Islam. He is an unapologetic defender of our nation's security and will be an excellent president.

"John McCain is without par in the fight to fix what is broken in Washington. He has been a leader in the U.S. Senate in fighting wasteful government spending and I look forward to working with him to ensure that the federal government starts working for the people again."

John McCain thanked Congressman Cantor, saying, "In the House, Eric is a consistent voice for the conservative cause. He has earned the respect of his peers and the admiration of his constituents. I am honored and grateful to have his support."

Eric Cantor is a fourth-term Congressman representing Virginia's seventh district including the Richmond-metro area. At the beginning of his second term in 2002, Eric was selected to serve as Chief Deputy Majority Whip, the highest appointed position in the House of Representatives. Eric and his wife Diana have three children: Evan, Jenna and Michael.
