ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today
announced that all nine delegates from the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern
Marianas will support John McCain for president. This is the first time
the Commonwealth GOP is participating in any U.S. election, as the group
was admitted to the national Republican Party after the 2004 election.
"I think John McCain is the most qualified person for the job," said
delegate Bo Palacios. "He knows the islands. He's a leader in economic
revival and he has the commitment to win the war."
John McCain thanked the Northern Marianas Republicans for their support,
stating, "I'm honored to have the support of these dedicated Republicans
from the Commonwealth, and proud that for the first time their delegation
will be able to join our Party's convention in September."
