Skip to comments.Forbes endorses McCain
Posted on 02/02/2008 12:31:39 PM PST by Tigen
Steve Forbes, the editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine and himself a former presidential candidate, announced his endorsement Saturday of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for president.
Forbes had campaigned hard in Florida for former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who dropped out after Tuesdays primary.
Two other high-profile Giuliani backers Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Solicitor General Theodore Olson also have switched to McCain.
The backing by Forbes is the latest in a cascade of signs that a once-reluctant Republican establishment is embracing McCain, who could wrap up the partys presidential nomination in three days on Super Tuesday.

Oh God no. Now I have to cancel my subscription to forbes. I’ve got the limbaugh letter,to read and that’s about it.
He was supporting Rudy. He likes that 25% corporate tax plan.
|The lack of any candidate who is a conservative has really made for some interesting endorsements. I had little enough hair before this campaign season, but with these weird endorsements to McCain, Romney and Huckabee, that have left me scratching my head, I have that much less.
I don’t know how much more disgusted I can become over this entire election fiasco, but with 9 months to go, I am sure I’ll be finding out.
He did support Rudy. No biggie here.
Maybe we can get a brokered convention.
Lex has not endorsed McCain. And I never will, course the MSM could care less. But I do have my principles!
Better yet. A new third party.
I like Steve Forbes but I can’t believe he’s thinking with his brain. McCain is far more likely to raise tax rates than he is to cut them.
It’s getting very ugly.
Opens borders are good for American corporations. That’s why Forbes endorses McInsane.
It won't happen and it won't work. Too many people on the government teat.I wish I knew what to do but I don't at this point.
Seems a little odd, particularly after McCain’s slam on businessmen in the last debate. Oh well.
He’s got Phil Graham, Jack Kemp, and now Steve Forbes (which I supported for President some time ago). I think Larry Kudlow backs him too.
Forbes is one of the Eastern elite... blue blood.. a POX on his magazine and web site! And I hope he slips on the ice and busts his BIG FAT @$$!
McCain has contempt for people who make profit .
Gee, this really does show McInsane’s ability to build bridges to disparate elements...the nerds and economics wonks in this case. I wonder when the Log Cabin Republicans will climb aboard and straddle the “Straight (?) Talk Express”..so to speak.
What am I missing here? Has McCain promised them things, either jobs or an actual tax rate reduction, for their support?
Then you'd think he'd like Mitt's 20% tax plan better.
