WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, rolled out the endorsements of four former secretaries of state Monday, the latest effort by the presidential candidate to highlight his foreign policy credentials.

Henry Kissinger, Alexander Haig, Lawrence Eagleburger and George Shultz announced they will support McCain's presidential bid.

Kissinger, who co-chairs McCain's fundraising efforts in New York, praised McCain's "record, character, and belief that America's best days lie ahead."

The announcement was made one day before the Arizona Republican plans to deliver a policy speech on Iraq at the Virginia Military Institute. McCain made a highly publicized trip to the war torn country last week.
