CONCORD – Former New Hampshire Board of Education Chairman Fred Bramante said Sen. John McCain's insistence to push school vouchers prompted him to endorse Sen. Barack Obama's candidacy Thursday.
Bramante, a Durham Republican and four-time candidate for governor, became the first delegate to the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., to abandon McCain.
"Senator McCain's support of vouchers is old news," Bramante told reporters during a conference call.
