John McCain released a statement Thursday announcing that he would support the GOP tax reform bill in the Senate, shrinking the already small number of Republicans who were on the fence or opposed.
After careful consideration, I have decided to support the Senate #TaxReform bill. Though not perfect, this bill will deliver much-needed reform to our tax code, grow the economy & provide long overdue tax relief for American families. https://t.co/BeWZAT0SjM pic.twitter.com/6qwYhmyE5p

President Donald Trump has been on the road touting the tax reform efforts. McCain’s decision may present the president a clear path to his first major legislative victory.
