SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Presidential candidate John McCain is expected to announce a new ally from Utah today.

Utah Senate Majority Leader Curtis Bramble is supporting the U.S. Senator from Arizona in his run for the White House.

But just a few months ago Bramble and 55 of his fellow Republican lawmakers showed support for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.

Bramble says he doesn't want his endorsement of McCain to be seen as a criticism of Romney. He says at this stage there's room to consider several candidates.

Bramble signed a Romney endorsement letter that circulated through the Legislature and attended a news conference during Romney's Feb. 20 visit.

But about two weeks after that, Bramble met alone with McCain at the Grand America Hotel where he promised his support.
