McCain nets ninth Senate endorsement

March 9, 2007

The Politico is reporting that Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) will endorse Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in his bid to become the next President of the United States. The announcement will take place today in Charlotte.

It will be the ninth such endorsement for McCain from a Senatorial colleague – double the number from his 2000 presidential run. Among those on board are Senators Trent Lott (R-MS), John Warner (R-VA) and John Thune (R-SD).

Congressional endorsements don’t translate into primary votes, but when a figure like McCain gets `em from the likes of Burr, Warner, Lott and Thune, it does raise eyebrows.
