Presidential Race Shakes Out at CPAC
34rd Annual Conservative Political Action Conference, February 7-9, 2008

February 7, 2008--Former Sen. George Allen (R-VA) and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) introduced Sen. John McCain.

McCain: "If I am so fortunate as to be the Republican nominee for President, I will offer Americans, in what will be a very challenging and spirited contest, a clearly conservative approach to governing.  I will make my case to voters, no matter what state they reside in, in the same way.  I will not obscure my positions from voters who I fear might not share them.  I will stand on my convictions, my conservative convictions, and trust in the good sense of the voters, and in my confidence that conservative pr inciples still appeal to a majority of Americans, Republicans, Independents and Reagan Democrats."
