McCain Picks His Economic Adviser

As was widely reported today in the Washington Post and elsewhere, Glenn Hubbard and Greg Mankiw have agreed to serve as economic advisers for Mitt Romney who is believed to be planning to run for president in 2008.

The Economist blog, Free exchange, reports that John McCain has also selected an adviser:

We have also heard that Doug Holtz-Eakin, another former Bush administration official who went on to head the Congressional Budget Office, will be John McCain's top economic advisor. Mr Holtz-Eakin is giving up his current job ... to work full-time for the McCain team.
