McCain Gets Support from Va Democrats
Republican John McCain's presidential campaign today announced the Virginia Citizens for McCain, a coalition of Democrats and independents who support the Arizona senator for president.
Christy Swanson, the group's vice chairwoman and a small business owner in Richmond, has been asked to speak at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn. next week.
"John McCain has always put his country first, above himself and above politics," said Swanson, a self-described Democrat. "He is a proven leader with the experience to lead as commander in chief from day one. John McCain's economic policies show an inherent understanding of the needs of small business owners nationwide. His 'all of the above' approach to the energy crisis is exactly what we need to obtain energy security. I will proudly campaign, and cast my vote, for John McCain."
The group's chairman, Rick Gray, served as secretary of the Commonwealth under former governor John Dalton and has actively campaigned for Democrats, including former presidential candidate Howard Dean.
