(CNN) – Sen. John McCain of Arizona will throw his support behind Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Wednesday, a senior Republican source close to the senator said.
The 2008 Republican presidential nominee will travel to New Hampshire to make the endorsement.

McCain won the New Hampshire primary during his presidential bid, beating Romney, who quickly endorsed McCain after he dropped out of the race in early February following key losses on Super Tuesday.
News of the endorsement was first reported by BuzzFeed Politics.

Looser to a Looser: Do as I say and you will do as I did. Gotta love the Rep Establishment, the true believers in a scorched earth philosophy where if they can't have it, no one will.
McCain was promised a shot after he endorsed W and lost, and now Romney will get the GOP nod. It's already a done deal.
Where's Sarah? No doubt the Tea/Republicans will graft her onto Romney as his VP and thus guarantee another lost election for themselves.
McCain's endorsement won't help Romney and will likely hurt him with Tea Party folks. Remember ... McCain was very insulting to the Tea Party which showed himeself as more interested in following the instructions from the crusty establishment GOP kings, than in a new era of American politics.

Throw? Mr. Senator, I would recommend a soft, underhanded toss. Throwing something as light as your support may shatter it in flight or overshoot its intended target.
Might as well be endorsed by 'W'. That will be the death knell of his campaign. If McCain endorsed water, I would quit drinking it!
Also ... McCain was such a sore loser in 2008 he showed his character by blaming Sara Palin for his failure.
I enjoy reading the comments of the bitter liberal loosers. However Mitt Romney will be the next president.
So Bush practically endorsed him & now McCain? wow the GOP fan base must be really really proud.
All I care is on November 6, Obama/Biden is declared the winner in the national election.
To quote Dick Cheney's simple missive: So?
All he needs now is for Palin to endorse him. Obama stop praying!
One loser supporting another. That is special.
So... that will firmly commit the GOP to flip flop candidates. Ain't it grande! What a mess. What a disappointing mess. The GOP has ruined Congress. I'm depressed.
LOL...a goof endorsing a goof!
Remember McCain endorsed Palin too not long ago..........!
McCain needs to retire..................and his endorsement isn't worth much to the Republican Party since many abandoned him in 2008. Wondering why Sarah Palin is soooooooo guiet lately..............is she biding her time to make an endorsement after SC or FL ? Just hoping she isn't stupid enough to go for Perry.
Neocon wargongers tend to aggregate like flies on....
This endorsement is about as helpful as Christine O'Donnell's.
McCain's Endorsement: "I'm sure he can't be any worse than that dang Sarah Palin."
