John McCain’s widow Cindy endorses Biden for president

Cindy McCain, the widow of former Republican Senator John McCain, said in a statement Tuesday that she will back Joe Biden for president.

In the statement released on Twitter, Cindy wrote Biden is the only candidate in the race who she believes will “stand up” for American values.

“My husband John lived by a code: country first. We are Republicans, yes, but Americans foremost. There’s only one candidate in this race who stands up for our values as a nation, and that is
@JoeBiden,” Cindy wrote on Twitter.

The announcement came after Biden mentioned the news himself during a fundraising call earlier in the day.

“Maybe I shouldn’t say it but I’m about to go on one of these Zooms with John McCain’s wife, who is first time ever is endorsing me because of what he talks about with my son and John’s who are heroes, who served their country, you know he said they’re losers, they’re suckers,” Biden said during a virtual fundraiser.

Cindy, who extolled Biden’s bipartisan abilities at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, is set to talk about her endorsement on several Wednesday morning news shows, Deadline reported.

According to Biden, Cindy arrived at her decision after a report in The Atlantic that alleged Trump labelled US soldiers who died in combat as “losers” and “suckers.”

Trump has repeatedly denied making the comments.

The president has, however, has not shied away targeting John McCain, once saying in 2015 the former prisoner of war wasn’t a hero because he was captured.
