Brownback Endorses McCain

Kansas Senator Sam Brownback endorsed Republican presidential hopeful John McCain:

Brownback said McCain is the most fiscally conservative candidate, has the best foreign policy experience, was right on the strategy for Iraq and takes a tough anti-abortion stand. He also argued that McCain would appoint strict constructionist judges to the Supreme Court.

If you want a guy to change Washington, John McCain's the guy to do it. He has been in Washington, but he is not of Washington.

Brownback's endorsement doesn't help McCain as much as Pat Robertson's endorsement helps Rudy.

McCain's campaign has been resurrected recently. The former front runner has clawed his way back to second place behind Rudy Giuliani in three recent polls.

National polls don't mean much in the presidential campaign. Statewide polls are much more significant. McCain is not faring as well in state polls:
In those, McCain is not faring as well. He is running fifth in Iowa, third in New Hampshire and fourth in South Carolina, according to the RealClearPolitics Web site's average of recent polls.
If McCain's better poll numbers translate to better fundraising numbers, he has a shot.
