(CNN) – President Bush will officially endorse John McCain's presidential run Wednesday at the White House. The two men will have a private lunch followed by a joint public statement.
The move by the president, who remained neutral throughout the Republican primary process, comes after a victory in Texas that gave McCain more than the 1,191 delegates required to claim the GOP nomination. The Arizona senator's remaining primary season rival, Mike Huckabee, withdrew from the presidential race Tuesday night.

UPDATE: CNN's Robert Yoon and Dana Bash report that McCain will pay a visit to Republican National Committee headquarters after his White House visit.
If Bush really wanted McCain to win in November he would endorse Ralph Nader.
I like John McCain, but love Hillary! Congrats, Sen. McCain!
Duh! That seems to sum up Bush's Presidency.
We should we have 4 more years of the same Administraton if McCain becomes President? Enough is enough!
This endorsement will be have the oppositie effect that Putins endorsement had on meduevededev.
George sees a Pardon in his future and the start of the Draft for fresh recruits.
This is good for Ron Paul
Wow, hasn't John McCain had it rough enough? I thought the winner was supposed to get a prize.
The political equivalent of a public hanging.
HOW DID HE RIGG THIS ... I WONDER???
That really puts McCain between a rock and a hard place. He needs the conservatives that blindly follow Bush and Co, but Bush and Co are so hugely unpopular that it will turn off tons and tons of people to have the two equated even more closely than they already are. McCain CANNOT allow Bush to stump for him and ABSOLUTELY CANNOT appear anywhere with him or he will sign his own campaign death certificate.
Info you and Obama is just a looser and jealous coz the comeback kid just return once and for all.
Now wakeup and think millions of times.
Obama BinLaden In WHite House? I don't thinks so. I believe KKK will haunt Obama down coming from the deep South.
