Sen. John McCain's campaign has announced a press conference, scheduled for 6 p.m. EST today, at which he'll be receiving what the campaign terms a "major endorsement." No guessing games today -- seems like this means the reports are true, and that the big endorser will be Rudy Giuliani, once a rival for the Republican presidential nomination.
Giuliani has reportedly confirmed to supporters that he's dropping out of the race. The Associated Press has a statement from New York Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno, a Republican. "I spoke with Rudy Giuliani this morning and he confirmed that he is dropping out of the race and will endorse Senator John McCain for president," Bruno said.
