Simi Valley, California.
Senator John McCain, the current frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination, stunned his supporters today with his announcement that he is dropping out of the presidential race for â€œpurely personal reasons.â€ He thanked his supporters and urged that they get behind Senator Hillary Clintonâ€™s bid for the presidency.
The Arizona Senator stated, â€œMy friends, today I am asking you to give your full support to the candidacy of Senator Hillary Clinton. She and I are of the same view when it comes to the important issues of our time, such as taxation of the rich and the plight of the undocumented workers in the United States. With respect to the war in Iraq, my friends, please remember that Senator Clinton originally supported the war, and I am confident that she will come around after the election. She will make a wonderful president.â€
