Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign has announced that Martin Feldstein, former chief economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan, has endorsed John McCain for president.
"I am proud to lend my support to John McCain for president," said Martin Feldstein. "John McCain is the candidate with the experience and leadership to keep America secure, with a proven track record as a fiscal conservative who can bring spending in Washington under control, and who can be trusted to build a stronger economy and brighter future for the next generation."
McCain thanked Feldstein for his support, stating, "Martin Feldstein was a trusted advisor to Ronald Reagan and helped craft his pro-growth agenda that ushered in a new era of American prosperity and helped win the Cold War. I am grateful for his support and insight."
Feldstein is the George F. Baker Professor of Economics at Harvard University and President and CEO of the National Bureau of Economic Research. From 1982 through 1984, Feldstein was Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers and President Reagan's chief economic adviser. In 2006, President Bush appointed him to be a member of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.
