'You gave it your all'

(CNN) - President Bush called Sen. McCain at 11:38 p.m. Below are quotes from that conversation, according to White House spokeswoman Dana Perino:

"John, you gave it your all. I'm proud of you, and I'm sorry it didn't work out. You didn't leave anything on the playing field.

"Your statement was fabulous and very classy. Please give our love to Cindy."

Perino says calls to both candidates were made from the President's office, the Treaty Room, in the Residence. President Bush will make a statement Monday morning in the Rose Garden, according to Perino.

Vice President Dick Cheney called Joe Biden from Gettysburg, South Dakota to offer his congratulations, according to Cheney spokeswoman Lea Anne Foster.
