N.D. Gov. John Hoeven endorses McCain for president
Hoeven met with McCain last week in Washington, D.C., to discuss national issues and issues close to North Dakota.
Hoeven cited McCain’s experience in public service, strong leadership on national defense and his commitment to hold the line on taxes.
“Sen. McCain is a tried and true leader,” Hoeven said in a statement. “He is a genuine war hero, having served his country in Vietnam, including five and a half years in a prisoner-of-war camp. In these challenging times, we need a strong leader like John McCain to ensure that Americans are safe both at home and abroad.”
