DAmato to Dump Fred, Back McCain

By Newsmax Staff

Former Sen. Alfonse D’Amato, Fred Thompson’s top supporter in New York, is set to change horses and back John McCain for president instead, according to a report in the New York Post.

D’Amato endorsed Thompson last fall as an alternative GOP candidate to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a longtime political foe of D’Amato.

“Alfonse realizes that Thompson has no chance and may be getting out of the race so he’s decided to endorse his old friend John McCain,” a source close to D’Amato told the Post.

D’Amato’s endorsement of McCain could come as early as Tuesday. D’Amato is returning to New York from Florida, and McCain has scheduled a campaign event in New York on Tuesday.
