McCain gets high-profile endorsement in Alabama
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. John McCain has scored the endorsement of a high-profile Alabama Republican, the Arizona senator's presidential exploratory committee announced Tuesday.

Winton Blount III, the former Alabama GOP chairman and a candidate for governor in 1994 and 1998, praised the likely presidential candidate's "long record of practicing common sense conservatism."

"He has never wavered from the values that we, as Republicans, hold dear," Blount said in a statement. "I am proud to add my name to those across the country who stand ready to support Senator McCain should he seek the presidency."
