McCain's Military Family Support
Mark Riss would have made real news if he announced his support for former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.
Riss was the diner patron who slammed Romney during the last debate for seeming to compare his son's campaign efforts to military service in Iraq.
"I don't think you fully understand how offended my wife and I were, and probably the rest of the people who have sons, daughters, husbands and wives serving in the war on terror to compare your son's attempts to get you elected to my son's service in Iraq," Riss said on live television during the debate.
So it's no real surprise that Riss has now formally become a supporter of Ariz. Sen. John McCain.
According to a report in the Portsmouth Herald, Riss is now a co-chairman of the New Hampshire Military Families for McCain Coalition and is already making calls on McCain's behalf.
"McCain was right from the beginning," Riss told the paper. "If they had listened to him, we wouldn't have needed the surge [of troops in Iraq]."
