“Conservatives needed to hear an endorsement of Senator McCain from their standard-bearer, Vice President Dick Cheney,” writes Politico’s Mike Allen. And Cheney delivered last night in a speech in Georgia when he urged the crowd to support McCain:
We won’t mind at all if you set another record this November — when you help John McCain become the next President of the United States.
Cheney added that he and President Bush “look forward to helping” McCain and other conservatives in the election. Applause for Cheney’s speech “started slowly and stretched to get into full gear.”
