Twenty-six S.C. mayors support McCain

April 2, 2007

The Associated Press is reporting that Sen. John McCain has netted endorsements and backing from twenty-six South Carolina mayors. By our count, that’s twenty-six more than all other candidates combined.

The US senator from Arizona announced Monday that a committee of mayors from across the state will help with his presidential campaign.

Committee members from larger towns and cities include North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey; Mount Pleasant Mayor Harry Hallman; Beaufort Mayor Bill Rauch; Fountain Inn Mayor Gary Long and Mayor Bobby Horton of West Columbia.

McCain says the mayors all know that their towns and their help will be valuable leading up to the state’s Republican presidential primary next year.

Sen. McCain said he was grateful to have the strong support of these local leaders in South Carolina.

“Each one of these individuals has the pulse of his or her community,” said Sen. McCain. “And as we continue to build a broad base of support in South Carolina, I believe their input will be extremely valuable. I look forward to working with them in the months ahead to help spread our message of common sense conservatism.”
