McCain backs Moran for Senate

Republican Rep. Jerry Moran collected another endorsement from the GOP establishment for his run for the Senate in Kansas next year. This time it was a big name: Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who lost the presidential race last year.

McCain framed his support around one of his signature issues: Moran, he said, “is not afraid to oppose wasteful earmarks that cheat the American taxpayer."

Moran is running against fellow Kansas Republican, Rep. Todd Tiahrt, for the GOP nomination.
