ARLINGTON, VA -- Today in Iowa, Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) endorsed John McCain for President of the United States. Senator Brownback will serve as a General Co-Chair of the campaign as well as Chair of the newly formed McCain Judicial Advisory Team. Senator Brownback will join John McCain in a campaign swing today through Iowa and Michigan, making stops in Dubuque, Des Moines, Sioux City and Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Senator Brownback issued the following statement on his endorsement of John McCain:
"Today I am proud to endorse my friend and a true American hero, John McCain, for President of the United States. While I respect all of the Republicans running for president this year, John McCain is the only candidate who can rally the Reagan coalition of conservatives, Independents, and conservative Democrats needed to defeat Hillary Clinton or any other Democrat in the general election next year. John McCain has spent a lifetime standing up for human rights around the world, including a consistent 24-year pro-life record of protecting the rights of the unborn. John McCain alone has the courage, leadership and character to lead our party to victory in 2008 while keeping faith with our most cherished values -- life, faith and family."
John McCain issued the following statement accepting Senator Brownback's endorsement:
"I am deeply honored to receive the support of my friend Senator Sam Brownback. Sam Brownback is a man of faith and compassion whose integrity and unwavering commitment to protecting the dignity of human life, both born and unborn, has been an inspiration to me. We Republicans must stand firm in our deepest principles to rally the conservative Reagan coalition and win a great victory next November. Sam Brownback's counsel and friendship will be invaluable as we work to achieve this worthy goal, and I thank him for his support."
