Word leaked out last week that former Gov. Jeb Bush had written a check to Republican presidential candidate John McCain, whose campaign made the endorsement official today.
"John is a patriot and devoted conservative leader," Bush said in a statement. "Like no other candidate in the field, John McCain has made tremendous sacrifices for this nation. He is beholden to no interest other than that of the public good. He is determined and steadfast in his commitment to reducing the burden of high taxes, restoring the people's trust in their government, and winning the war against radical Islamic extremists. It is with pride that I announce my endorsement of John McCain for president."
