McCain and Romney now “good friends”
ALBUQUERQUE – For those of you keeping track of who Republican presidential candidate John McCain might pick as his vice presidential running mate, consider this:
McCain told a fundraising event in Albuquerque that he and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, whom McCain defeated in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, have become good friends.
It was only a few months ago when the two were at each other’s throats in the often-acrimonious campaign.
“Mitt and Ann Romney and Cindy and I have become good friends,” McCain said in describing how he feels the Republican Party is united now for the battle against Barack Obama for the Nov. 4 election.
In fact, he said, based on Romney’s television appearances on McCain’s behalf, “He does a better job for me than he did for himself, as a matter of fact.”
