Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas is praising Arizona Senator John McCain’s victory in the New Hampshire Republican primary.

Douglas endorsed McCain on Sunday and campaigned with him on Monday.

Douglas says he believes McCain can reach across party lines and attract support from independents and Democrats.

The governor says he disagrees with McCain about the Iraq war. Douglas would like to see a stronger push for withdrawal than McCain has spoken of.

Douglas also acknowledged that he supported President Bush over McCain in 2000, but added, “Then was then. Now is now.”
