Right Wing Evangelist Dobson Endorses Huck
February 08, 2008
Well damn, Dobson, there's no one left with any fundie cred in the clown car (save Alan Keyes). Guess he finally had to break down and do something. Folks, this pretty much signals that Dobson wants Huck on the ticket. Will McCain kneel before Daddy D?
James Dobson, one of the nation's most prominent evangelical Christian leaders, is about to endorse former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, The Associated Press has learned.
Dobson, founder of Colorado Springs, Colo.-based Focus on the Family, talked to the GOP presidential hopeful Thursday and later was to release a statement explaining his choice, said Gary Schneeberger, a spokesman for Dobson.
Huckabee had long sought Dobson's endorsement, believing he is the best fit to advance Dobson's conservative, moral worldview.
...Dobson released a statement Tuesday that criticized McCain for his support of embryonic stem cell research, his opposition to a federal anti-gay marriage amendment and for his temper and use of foul language. He said if McCain were the nominee, he would not cast a ballot for president for the first time in his life.
