U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today announced that Palm Beach County Republican Party Vice Chair Beth Kigel and Wellington City Councilwoman Laurie Cohen have endorsed John McCain for president.

"At this time in our nation's history, we need a candidate who can reign in governmental spending and who is best qualified to be commander in chief," said Beth Kigel. "There is not a more experienced candidate when it comes to addressing our economic and foreign policy challenges than John McCain."

Councilwoman Cohen added, "John McCain has by far the most leadership credentials to be our next commander in chief. He will keep America safe at home and abroad, and he has the conservative fiscal principles that I value in a candidate. John McCain is a man of honesty and integrity, and he has the courage to stay true to his principles."

John McCain expressed his appreciation of the endorsements saying, "These Palm Beach County leaders are fine examples of public service and commitment to the people of Florida. I am grateful for their support and for their important contribution to my campaign."

Palm Beach County Republican Party Vice Chair Beth Kigel has been a prominent member of the Palm Beach community for many years and has a demonstrated record of public service to the citizens of Palm Beach County and to the state of Florida.
