With the race for the GOP nomination basically settled, U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings is now endorsing John McCain.

From The AP:

Hastings, a Republican from Pasco, Wash., says McCain will protect America’s national security and tackle the federal budget by cutting spending rather than increasing taxes.

Hastings also says he appreciates McCain’s commitment to nuclear power and hydropower dams, especially those on the Snake River, as vital to the Northwest and the country’s energy future.

Rep. Dave Reichert of Auburn also has endorsed McCain, as have Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna and former U.S. Sen. Slade Gorton.
