Grover Norquist of the Americans for Tax Reform
New York Times: Christian Right Labors to Find â€™08 Candidate
A group of influential Christian conservatives and their allies emerged from a private meeting at a Florida resort this month dissatisfied with the Republican presidential field and uncertain where to turn.
The event was a meeting of the Council for National Policy, a secretive club whose few hundred members include Dr. James C. Dobson of Focus on the Family, the Rev. Jerry Falwell of Liberty University and Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform. Although little known outside the conservative movement, the council has become a pivotal stop for Republican presidential primary hopefuls, including George W. Bush on the eve of his 1999 primary campaign.
When Rudy Giuliani wraps up the GOP nomination, the KINGMAKERS of the Evangelical Christian Right MIGHT turn to a third party candidate.
The only question is how marginalized and irrelevant will they become. No GOP Senator, Governor or Congressman will foresake their political career to become a GOP spoiler in ’08.
Flap’s bet is that these folks will splinter and divide. Some will covertly support Giuliani and some will support the third party candidate.
Probably only in the Red States that are already going GOP against Hillary.
But, guess what? In those states it is winner take all and the electoral votes will go to Rudy in any case.
But, if Rudy were to choose former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee as Vice President, they might find an excuse to support/vote for the “Redemptive SINNER.”

So, what will Norquist, Weyrich, Dobson, Falwell, Robertson’s role be in the presidential campaign of 2008?
To drive East and West Coast center-left independent voters to the GOP, of course……
