Martinez tells all! The McCain endorsement

7:55 01/29/08

Senator Mel Martinez tells me tonight that he voted for John McCain when he voted early some weeks ago. Martinez had been hesitant to endorse in the Republican Presidential Primary. Rudy Giuliani had courted Martinez as part of his work in the Cuban American Community. Giuliani was aware that Martinez and McCain had talked. Giuliani wanted Martinez to atleast stay neutral. In the end Martinez tells me that what sent him out front was his belief that McCain would be the best candidate to attract independent voters in the general election. Independent voters are McCain’s strong suite and Martinez believes he can bring them to the Republican table.
