ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today announced that former Rudy Giuliani National Policy Director Bill Simon has endorsed John McCain for president. Simon will join the campaign serving as National Policy Co-Chair.

"I am very proud to support John McCain to be the next President," said Simon. "John has been a tireless leader for our party for over two decades, and his experience and judgment are precisely the qualities needed in our next Commander and Chief."

John McCain thanked Simon for his support, stating, "I am pleased that Bill Simon has agreed to join our campaign team. I was proud to campaign for him in 2002 and have enormous respect for him as a national conservative leader."

Mr. Simon has had a distinguished career in law, business, and public policy. He is co-chairman of William E. Simon and Sons, LLC, an investment firm which he co-founded in 1988 with his father, William E. Simon, Sr., a former United States Treasury Secretary, and his brother J. Peter Simon. He has given speeches to numerous conservative organizations including the Heritage Foundation, Manhattan Institute, Conservative Political Action Conference, and the Pacific Research Institute.

In addition, he has appeared regularly on FOX News and written articles for the American Spectator and NewsMax.com. He also currently serves as co-chairman of the Cynthia L. and William E. Simon, Jr. Foundation, which helps needy children in urban areas through faith-based efforts. Simon entered the political arena in 2001 as the Republican gubernatorial nominee in California. Early in his career, Simon worked as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was then the United States Attorney for the Southern District.
