I asked yesterday what you thought of the NRLC’s endorsement of Fred Thompson. Here are the results:
The announcement will take place in about an hour at the Press Club in Washington.
Catholic Online reports:
Tuesday morning, November 13, 2007 at 10:00 A.M., at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., the Nations largest Pro-life organization will formally announce its endorsement of Fred Thompson for President.
The organization is one of the Nations oldest and most respected Pro-life organizations. It has fifty State affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters. Adding to the strength of the endorsement will be the presence of the entire executive leadership at the Dias of the Press Club, Wanda Franz, Ph.D., President; David N. O’Steen, Ph.D., Executive Director; Darla St. Martin, Co-Executive Director; and Karen Cross, Political Director,
This announcement will be one more in a growing string of endorsements which have announced in the last ten days. More are expected. Given the strength and history of the National Right to Life, many observers note that this endorsement for Thompson is quite significant.
The announcement was initially disclosed by two Republican activists who spoke on condition of anonymity. It comes on the heels of a stinging Nov. 8th column by Robert Novak entitled “Fred Thompson’s stunning error” wherein the seasoned D.C. commentator eschewed what he wrote was “Thompson’s ….astounding lack of sensitivity about the abortion issue.”
Fred Thompson, the Republican candidate who entered the race late, has continually touted his claim that he is “100% pro-life.” His campaign has been attempting to attribute recent comments indicating that he did not support a Constitutional Amendment outlawing Abortion given in a Fox News Interview to his practical conviction that such an effort could not succeed and would therefore be counterproductive.
