Former six-term New Hampshire Congressman Charlie Bass endorsed John McCain today just as he had during McCain's race for president in 2000.
Bass is a Peterborough Republican and the son of a former governor. He is not beloved by the Republican base, but his moderate politics allowed his to survive re-election in his Democratic-leaning district.
He was defeated in 2006 by Democrat Paul Hodes in the Democratic wave that year.
"Our nation needs a leader with the strength, experience, and character to lead as commander in chief from day one and John McCain is that leader," said Bass in a statement. "John McCain is the only candidate with the proven national security experience vital to confronting the challenges facing our nation, and that's why I am proud to support him for president."
Yesterday McCain picked up the endorsement of New Hampshire Senate Republican Leader Ted Gatsas.
