John McCain endorses Scott Brown in Mass. Senate race


BOSTON (FOX 25 / Former Republican presidential candidate and current U.S. Senator from Arizona John McCain endorsed U.S. Senator Scott Brown in a YouTube video on Saturday.

McCain cited Brown's more than three decades of service in the National Guard as his reason for endorsing the Republican from Massachusetts.

"We don't have enough of this military and leadership experience in Washington," says McCain. "Scott understands that our freedoms are protected by a strong military and our number one priority is keeping Americans safe at home and abroad."

The 2008 presidential nominee's endorsement was released on the same day that Democrat Elizabeth Warren held her first fall rally in Boston.
