California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger formally endorsed John McCain today:
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced Thursday he is endorsing Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain.
In endorsing McCain, Schwarzenegger lauded the Arizona senator’s crusade against wasteful spending, his national security credentials and his environmental and economic stewardship.
Flanked by McCain and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who endorsed McCain on Wednesday, Schwarzenegger said he was giving McCain his blessing “because I am interested in a great future and I think Sen. McCain has proven over and over again that he is reaching across the aisle in order to get things done.”
“He’s a great American hero and an extraordinary leader,” the governor said.
Schwarzenegger made the announcement at a solar technologies company in Los Angeles, a day after the four Republican candidates debated at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.
This should help McCain in California on Tuesday. What’s intertesting is that McCain and Giuliani seem to be campaigning together.
In other news, Texas Governor Rick Perry also endorsed McCain today. The Republican Establishment has chosen their candidate.
