U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today announced its Connecticut Leadership Team. United States Senator Joseph I. Lieberman (I-CT) and Congressman Christopher Shays (R-CT) will serve as Co-Chairs of John McCain's campaign in Connecticut. They will lead the grassroots organization on behalf of John McCain's candidacy leading up to Connecticut's February 5th presidential primary.

"There is no candidate more experienced or prepared to lead our nation than John McCain," said Senator Lieberman. "I have known and served with John McCain in the Senate and John has proven he can be trusted to do what is right for our country, and not just what is easy. As president, John McCain will bring America together and inspire a renewed patriotism and unity. He will work to restore Americans' trust in government and defeat our most dangerous enemies in these uncertain times."

"This is a critical time for our nation and John McCain's unparalleled leadership and experience is what America needs now more than ever," said Rep. Shays. "The people of Connecticut value the straight talk and independent, maverick spirit John McCain brings to tackling the tough problems facing America. I am proud to stand with John McCain as we work towards victory in Connecticut on February 5th."

John McCain thanked the Connecticut leadership team. "These dedicated leaders reflect the strong, grassroots organization we have in Connecticut and I am grateful for their support as we work towards victory on February 5th."
