Brownback to drop out
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- One of the strongest pro-life candidates will leave the race for the Republican nomination for president on Friday. Kansas senator Sam Brownback, who many pro-life advocates favored but who never could rise up out of the back end of the polls, said he would quit the race after reporting fundraising problems.This is exactly the point I made in the post below...it's time for conservatives to begin to come to a consensus.
Brownback had a sterling pro-life record as a member of the Senate and was the key sponsor of pro-life bills to ban human cloning and help limit the number of abortions.
He finished third in the August pre-caucus event in Iowa but that was considered a bust in some circles because fellow pro-life candidate Mike Huckabee spent less on the event and came in second.
With Brownback's departure, a scramble will begin for the many pro-life activists in the leading primary states who had signed on to his campaign.
His withdrawal could help focus pro-life efforts to make sure pro-abortion former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani doesn't secure the GOP nod next year.
