Morton Blackwell Endorses McCain

Posted: Feb 12, 2008 2:57 PM

A day after being endorsed by Gary Bauer, John McCain continues to pick up the reluctant endorsements of prominent conservative leaders:

Calling McCain "a liaison in the Reagan movement," Morton Blackwell, president and founder of the conservative Leadership Institute, said he too is willing to stand behind McCain if he is nominated. "He was not my first choice, but it is my practice that I always will support the Republican nominee," said Blackwell.
