ARLINGTON, VA – U.S. Senator John McCain’s presidential exploratory committee today announced that Rep. Ric Keller (FL-08) will support the Arizona Senator should he decide to seek the presidency.

Rep. Ric Keller is currently serving his fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives.  He serves on the House Education and Labor Committee and the House Judiciary Committee.

“Senator McCain is a common sense conservative who is committed to fiscal responsibility,” said Rep. Keller.  “Senator McCain has worked to build a smaller, smarter, and more efficient federal government.  I look forward to reaching out to Florida citizens on his behalf.”

Senator McCain stated that he was honored to have the support of Rep. Ric Keller.  “Rep. Keller has been a strong, independent voice in central Florida,” said Senator McCain. “Ric’s dedication to reducing the size of government and protecting Americans is a testament to his strong leadership.”
