U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today announced that Robert Ehrlich, former Governor of Maryland, has endorsed John McCain for president.

"John McCain is prepared to serve," said Governor Ehrlich. "He is ready to take on the challenges facing our country. He has the experience to lead from day one. I know that he will continue to press for fiscal responsibility from the Congress and, he will work tirelessly to make certain that our troops have the resources and training they need to succeed in the war against radical Islamic extremism. I am proud to endorse John McCain for president."

John McCain thanked Governor Ehrlich for his support, saying, "Over the years, Bob Ehrlich has been a strong voice for the hard-working families of Maryland. I admire him for his service, and I am honored to have his support."

Bob Ehrlich was born in Arbutus, Maryland. He earned degrees from Princeton University and the Wake Forest University Law School. From 2003 to 2007, Bob Ehrlich served as Maryland's 60th Governor. Prior to serving as Governor, Bob Ehrlich represented Maryland's 2nd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
