Former South Dakota Senator Larry Pressler, the first Vietnam vet to serve in the US Senate, says John McCain’s “handling of the financial crisis made me feel nervous.”  Pressler also donated $500 to the Obama campaign.

He joins a growing list of Republicans who have thrown their support to Obama in recent days. Last Sunday former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed Obama on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” On Thursday Obama picked up the support of former Minnesota Gov. Arne Carlson, who was joined on Friday by former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld.


Pressler says he has no intention of leaving the GOP and considers himself “a moderate conservative.”
