President Bush endorses John McCain

President Bush has endorsed John McCain. The announcement comes a day after the Arizona senator clinched the Repubican presidential nomination by getting the required number of delegates. Bush's nod is recognition that McCain is the party's choice.

"I've campaigned against him and I've campaigned with him," Bush said. Later, Bush said, "He's going to be the president."

Bush had formally welcomed McCain and his wife, Cindy, at the North Portico of the White House. He hosted a lunch in his private dining room.

McCain was visiting Republican National Committee headquarters later in the day.
