McCain’s New Yorkers: Cox, Callaghan, Roosevelt, Whitehead

Ed Cox, the son-in-law of Richard Nixon who abandoned a bid for the 2006 Republican nomination for Senate against Hillary Clinton, is now the chairman of John McCain’s New York campaign. [The official announcement should be going out shortly.]

He and the New York national campaign’s executive director, Chris Cox (Ed’s son), will be in Albany today filing with the state Board of Elections to show they have a slate of 174 delegates.

The list includes Ed Mullins, President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, Teddy Roosevelt IV, former Chairman of the League of Conservation Voters, David Rosado, former New York State Senator, Chris Callaghan, former Saratoga County Treasurer and former candidate for New York State Comptroller and John Whitehead, former Chairman of Goldman Sachs and former United States Deputy Secretary of State.
