Brian Sullivan jumps on Straight Talk Express

Brian Sullivan, who was the co-chair to Minnesotans for Mitt Romney, is now backing John McCain for president. Why does this matter, you ask? Well, Sullivan had this to say about McCain on Super Tuesday:

“He has, in my opinion, gone out of his way to poke a stick in the eye of Republicans with his stance on a number of issues. One of the challenges when you ask for their support is that you may not get it.”

Well, apparently he got Sullivan’s support. Here’s the release from the McCain Campaign:


ARLINGTON, VA — U.S. Senator John McCain’s presidential campaign today announced that 19 additional Republican National Committee Members have endorsed John McCain for president.

“The Republican Party continues to rally around John McCain,” said RNC Vice Chairman Chuck Yob. “John McCain will unite our party, and his broad electoral appeal will lift all Republicans running for office against stiff Democratic competition this November. He has shown that he has the experience and tested judgment to lead our nation and our Party from his first day in office.”

John McCain thanked the RNC members, saying, “I am grateful for these RNC delegates’ support. Their service to our party has been admirable and I am proud to have them on my team.”

Members of the Republican National Committee are automatically seated as delegates at the Republican National Convention.
