GOP state Senate candidates hardcore McCain backers

Although their war hero presidential candidate is limping badly in the polls, Assemblyman Bill Baroni and Assemblyman Sean Kean have no intentions of changing horses.

Both New Jersey politicians – who are favored to win their races in the 14th and 11th districts respectively, still support U.S. Senator John McCain, who’s at 8% among New Jersey Republican voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released last month.

That’s 37 percentage points behind former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and four points in back of former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson.

But Baroni and Kean remain solidy in support of the Senator from Arizona.

“I trust the wisdom of the voters,” said Baroni, who believes McCain will be in a better position after Iowa and New Hampshire.

“I’m absolutely behind him,” Kean said of McCain. “I think he’s the best guy.”
