Prominent Dems Will Lead McCain New Hampshire Organization
Here’s another painful reminder that not everyone was happy with the Obama nomination.
Two prominent democrats will lead the “New Hampshire Democrats for McCain” organization.
Two well-known New Hampshire Democrats have endorsed the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee. Jim McConaha and Valery Mitchell, who have pledged their support to U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), will serve as co-chairs of “New Hampshire Democrats for McCain.”
The announcement comes the day before U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), McCain’s presumptive general election opponent, campaigns in New Hampshire with U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.).
McConaha was a political appointment of President Clinton and served as New Hampshire director for the federal Farm Service Agency and was recently a member of U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd’s presidential Steering Committee.
Mitchell was a member of John Kerry’s Steering Committee in 2004 and also supported Dodd in 2008. She is a former organizer of the Democratic Network.
“It was not easy to step away from my party in the McCain-Obama race, but I want a president whose judgment we know and trust, and a leader who will do what is in the best interest of our country without regard to politics or ideology,” Mitchell said in a campaign press release.
McConaha also cited McCain’s judgement.
“This is the most important job in the world. We need a leader of proven competence, tested judgment and substantial experience in the modern world and, obviously, that is John McCain.”
