Just in time – Jeb Bush endorses McCain

by Palm Beach Post Staff | February 11th, 2008

Jeb Bush, who turns 55 today, decided to give John McCain a gift – his endorsement.

Golly. . .when was the Florida primary?

The Q bets Mike Huckabee is really steamed – there goes the election.

In a statement from the McCain campaign both men say the other is really swell.

Here’s the statement:

John McCain is a patriot and devoted conservative leader,” said Governor Bush. “Like no other candidate in the field, John McCain has made tremendous sacrifices for this nation. He is beholden to no interest other than that of the public good. He is determined and steadfast in his commitment to reducing the burden of high taxes, restoring the people’s trust in their government, and winning the war against radical Islamic extremists. It is with pride that I announce my endorsement of John McCain for president.”

John McCain thanked Governor Bush, saying, “I am very proud to have Jeb Bush’s support. He has a distinguished record of conservative leadership and I admire his dedicated service to the people of Florida. He makes a great addition to our growing team of Republican leaders.”
