GOP Congressional Group Says It Won't Back McCain


thehill.com

At least 14 Republican members of Congress have refused to endorse or publicly support Sen. John McCain for president, and more than a dozen others declined to answer whether they back the Arizona senator.

Many of the recalcitrant GOP members declined to detail their reasons for withholding support, but Rep. John Peterson (R-Pa.) expressed major concerns about McCain’s energy policies and Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) cited the Iraq war.

A handful of other Republicans on Capitol Hill made the distinction between “endorsing” and “supporting,” adding that while they have not endorsed, they do support McCain.

In recent weeks, much of the discussion and debate about party unity has been on the Democrats’ side, amid their protracted presidential primary. Yet achieving harmony is a concern on both sides of the aisle this year.

I maintain this is a far bigger issue for McCain and the Republicans in general than some Clinton backers threatening to vote for McCain is... after all the Republicans are already expecting to lose big in the congressional part of this election season and then there is the fact of the tepid enthusium from the evangelicals and other conservatives for McCain.
