The Hattiesburg American, 3/4/8

As he nears the magic number of delegates to clinch the nomination the endorsements continue to pour in for Sen. John McCain, with two southern state governors set to announce their support for the Arizona senator today.

Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour and Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue, both of whom are being talked about by the pundits as possible vice presidential picks, will endorse McCain at a press conference in Washington tomorrow morning, FOX has learned.

McCain will not be on hand for the endorsement – he will be in Arizona and Texas today – but he will run into Perdue later in the week. The Georgia governor is hosting a fundraiser for him Thursday in Atlanta.
