Lieberman Explains McCain's Appeal to Independents

In a mailing from the McCain Campaign, Senator Joe Lieberman detailed his support for Senator McCain...

"Time and time again John McCain has put his country first. He refused early release when he was held captive in Vietnam. He continued to put his country first as a national leader in the U.S. Senate. He put country before party when he fought to pass campaign finance reform, sought a bi-partisan solution to the immigration problem, and consistently supported pro-environment policies. His courage to stand up to the failed Iraq war plan of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and lead the fight for a new strategy in Iraq will go down in history, and it saved American lives. These were not always the easy things to do. In fact, they were usually very difficult, and often threatened his political career. But John McCain did what was right."

Senator Lieberman is chairing a new organization called Citizens First for Senator McCain's campaign made up of Republicans, Independents and Democrats who support a McCain presidency.
