(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.
Gingrich: Romney is lying
Bachmann looks ahead to South Carolina
Gingrich suggests a Tuesday win
Gingrich strives for 'great upset' in Iowa
Phoney loser murderer. Who cares what McDisable thinks. He is responsible for O'Bama.
Who cares what McNutsky thinks. He is the reason you got O'Bama. And 10 more years of their crusade.
This is GREAT!!! One loser backing another..
Maybe he wants to re-elect The Obaminator.
Well, he is military.
An endorsement from the man who picked Sarah Palin as his VP enough said. McCain still thinks he's going against Obama and has to be reminded the race ended in 2008.
So much for Romney! LOL
A lot of the same right-wingers who hate Romney LOATHE McCain, so this will drive them completely insane.
So insane that they might even nominate Rick Santorum. Politics is a nutty business, stranger things have happened....
McCain ran a poor campaign. Should have easily beat Obama based on Obama's inexperience and voting 'present' in IL senate. As an IL voter, wasn't fooled before about Obama, optimistic that the 'Hope and Change' naive idealists won't be fooled again.
If Hillary was running, might cast a vote. As an independent voter, it's again, anyone BUT Obama.
Sen. John McCain of Arizona and former Senator Dole have shown there true colors. And why they both lost the General election .
They both sold out ! For two old veterans to support Romney who avoided military service says it all. And a disgrace to all those young men and women who served in armed forces.
Maybe John thinks he has a shot at the VP spot , don't think so. No country for old men.
Congrats on winning Iowa Gov. Romney! The narrowest victories are the most satisfying. All the best in the upcoming caucuses.
This is just another reason why I will not be supporting Romney.
Hey Ann Coulter!!! I bet you're loving the 25% huh?!!!! LOL
The Co-Sponsor of the NDAA Law to endorse Romney. Lol. These people make me sick.
Romney wants McCain's endorsement? Is he stupid?
Kiss of death? lolz
Yea Romney !!!
One loser backing another – go figure...........
All Mittens needs to do now is choose $illy $arah for his VP pick – THAT would seal the deal!!!!
Sen. McCain endorsing Mitt Romney for the GOP Presidential nomination has got to be the biggest kiss of death a candidate could ever have! Thanks John.
Not that it matters, but add one more kiss of death to Romney's candidacy. Maybe Jariv's kissing of Romney's butt can help counter it.
Might just be me but I would think that an endorsement from McCain would be a bad thing. I don't like Obama but I'd still vote for Obama over McCain. Having McCain back someone is just another sign for me not to vote for that person.
Well if that ain't the "Political Kiss of Death". That about like Michelle Bachmann declaring herself to be the "Iron Lady of America" when in fact she is nothing more than a walking joke.
McCain will endorse a person who will lose as he did. Romney is not able to emerge as a real winner in Iowa, how can he beat Pres. Obama nationally?
Is there anyone left who considers McCain relevant?
I guess this proves that it is all about politics. One would almost think that McCain would have supported whoever placed first in IA.
