Within the hour, social conservative leader and televangelist Pat Robertson will ENDORSE Rudy Giuliani for President.

So who is Pat Robertson?

Robertson is widely viewed as one of the pillars of the religious right. He founded the Christian Broadcasting Network, the Christian Coalition and Regent University in Virginia Beach. Robertson ran for president in 1988, finishing a surprising second in the Iowa caucuses before losing steam in later states.

This is a COUP for Giuliani and highlights the split in the social conservative movement.

Previously, Mitt Romney, a Mormon, has been actively courting social conservatives and has boasted the endorsements of Paul Weyrich and Bob Jones III.

This endorsement will help the Mayor in the South and the Midwest “Bible Belt.” With his Christian Broadcasting Network, Robertson will broadcast social conservative acceptability for Rudy.

Update:

Pat Robertson has said Rudy would make a “Good President” since 2005.

Update #2:

From the Press release:

New York City – The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee today announced that Pat Robertson has endorsed Rudy Giuliani for President of the United States.

“It is my pleasure to announce my support for America’s Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, a proven leader who is not afraid of what lies ahead and who will cast a hopeful vision for all Americans,” said Pat Robertson. “Rudy Giuliani took a city that was in decline and considered ungovernable and reduced its violent crime, revitalized its core, dramatically lowered its taxes, cut through a welter of bureaucratic regulations, and did so in the spirit of bipartisanship which is so urgently needed in Washington today.”

“I am very encouraged by Pat’s support,” Rudy Giuliani said. “His confidence in me means a lot. His experience and advice will be a great asset to me and my campaign.”

    Have you seen the borderline anti-semitic rant calling itself a Giuliani ad (obviously NOT) on Youtube that’s all about the drivers license issue? The dems seem to love it, but it’s dirty trickery at its worst. Here’s the link to see what I’m talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2Sc_E1llpY
