John McCain, who is not known for his popularity with Republican House members, is set to meet with congressional leaders this morning at their weekly confernece meeting. Some members have not been shy about their distaste for the Senator.
At the request of his campaign, McCain will visit the House Republican Conference, whose members include some who have said they felt physically ill at the prospect of the senator heading the ticket. [stoked]
Note: There is a press conference that will take place immediately after the meeting. Look for fake smiles.
UPDATE: Boehner, Blunt and Putnam just endorsed McCain.
