    Reform Party endorses McCain

    Calling him the true reformer in the presidential contest, members of Reform Party USA endorsed Sen. John McCain for president on Saturday.

    Party Chairman Frank MacKay said representatives from 27 states voted to endorse McCain, the Republican nominee and Arizona senator. None voted for Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois.

    "It's a good day for reform," MacKay told The Associated Press. "Whether (McCain) wins or loses, I believe we did the right thing and it gives independents the best chance out there to elect one of our own to the White House."

    MacKay said the endorsement is a badge of honor for McCain.

    MacKay, also head of New York's Independence Party, says the group considers Obama to be a traditional liberal Democrat.

    MacKay made the announcement from Long Island at the national convention of the party founded by supporters of billionaire Ross Perot, a third-party presidential candidate in 1992.

    There was no immediate comment from the Obama campaign.

    I didnt even know the Reform Party was still around. They are not running a candidate for POTUS this year, they are just endorsing McCain???

    How can you be a political party and not run anybody yourself, kinda makes your party look like a joke.

    I give this endorsement about a 1% chance of moving the polls a single point.
