Dobson says no-go on Giuliani
First John McCain, and now Rudy. From Fox News:
In a blistering online column, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson wrote that, should the former New York mayor become the nominee, "I will either cast my ballot for an also-ran - or if worse comes to worst - not vote in a presidential election for the first time in my adult life."The type of people that listen to Dobson's program the type of conservative voters that make up about of third of the GOP base...and there's no doubt at all that this is a big blow for Rudy...especially coming on the heels of his shaky performance on the abortion issue in recent debates. Not what the folks in Camp Giuliani needed.
"Many liberal Americans will agree with the social positions espoused by Giuliani. However, I don't believe conservative voters whose support he seeks will be impressed," Dobson said on WorldNetDaily, a conservative news Web site.
A Christian evangelical based in Colorado Springs, Colo., Dobson said he was speaking as a private citizen. However, his words carry considerable weight with the some 7 million listeners of his conservative radio show.
