The widely-read Manchester Union Leader has endorsed McCain for the Republican Presidential nomination. This endorsement is a huge victory in the battle for the New Hampshire Primary. Let the editors speak for themselves:
"What is most compelling about McCain ... is that his record, his character, and his courage show him to be the most trustworthy, competent, and conservative of all those seeking the nomination. Simply put, McCain can be trusted to make informed decisions based on the best interests of his country, come hell or high water."
