Hagee endorses McCain


Arguably the most influential Christian Zionist, evangelical leader John Hagee, has endorsed John McCain. The two men praised each other as strong supporters of Israel:

“I’m very honored by Pastor John Hagee’s endorsement today,” McCain said at a news conference. “He has been the staunchest leader of our Christian evangelical movement in many areas, but especially, most especially, his close ties and advocacy for the freedom and independence of the state of Israel.”

Hagee, standing beside the candidate, said he admired McCain’s pro-Israel stance, commitment to nominate conservative judges and opposition to abortion.
