McCain: I Will Support Ted Cruz If He Wins GOP Nomination

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” veteran lawmaker Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said while Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC),  his long time friend, is his first choice, he will support Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) if he wins the nomination for president in the 2016 election.

McCain said, “If the Republicans Party nominates him, I do. He is a valued member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. He and I are friendly and I think he is a very viable candidate.”

When asked if that was an endorsement, McCain said “No. You know, Lindsey Graham  is my — is my — the one I think that knows best about national security.”
