South Carolina Ag commissioner backs McCain
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A key South Carolina Republican threw his support behind Sen. John McCain's potential White House run Tuesday, nearly two weeks after the Arizona Republican filed papers to form a presidential exploratory committee.

Hugh Weather, the state Agriculture Commissioner, said McCain's character and politics appeal to all South Carolinians.

"John McCain appeals to farmers and all South Carolinians because of his character, integrity and unique qualifications for the office," Weathers said in a statement.

McCain has said he will decide over the holidays whether to seek the White House a second time.
