U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today announced that six former Republican National Committee Chairmen, Senator Bill Brock, Ambassador Clayton Yeutter, Rich Bond, Jim Nicholson, Jim Gilmore and Ken Mehlman, have endorsed John McCain for president.
The campaign further announced that Ms. Sally Atwater, Council member of the Republican Women's Federal Forum and the wife of the late RNC Chairman Lee Atwater, has endorsed John McCain.

"John McCain is bringing our Party together around conservative principles on national security, fiscal responsibility and traditional values," said Ambassador Yeutter. "His experience, courage and character make him the only candidate ready to lead as commander in chief on day one. We must now unite the Party around our presumptive nominee, John McCain, and build toward victory in November."

Mr. Bond stated, "John McCain's conservative vision to keep America safe, prosperous and proud is uniting the Republican Party for victory in November. Now is the time to unite our Party behind our presumptive nominee, John McCain, and begin the great task of organizing to defeat the liberal Democrats and win a great victory for Republican values this fall."

Mr. Nicholson said, "John McCain offers the best chance we have to keep America safe and strong. There is no comparison."

John McCain thanked the former Party Chairs and Ms. Atwater, stating, "I admire these Republican leaders for their dedication, commitment and hard work on our Party's behalf, and I am proud to have their support. I look forward to drawing on their experience, knowledge and leadership as we continue to unite Republicans around conservative principles to defeat the Democrats and win a great victory in November."
