McDonnell OK With McCain as Nominee
Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell, a conservative Republican who may run for governor next year, said today he would be comfortable if Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) becomes the GOP presidential nominee, even though some party activists are questioning McCain's commitment to the conservative cause.
"John McCain is a war hero, and he is an expert on national defense and national security is the top issue the country is facing right now," said McDonnell, who initially supported former senator Fred Thompson. "I think he would be an excellent commander in chief. Do I agree with him on immigration and campaign finance or some of his views on global warming? No. I think he is wrong on some of those issues but he brings a lot more to the table to be the leader of the free world compared to either one of the two Democrats."
