McCain Endorsed by "Republicans for Choice"

McCain needs to start getting a better class of endorsements. Last week, it was pro-abort moderates Rudy and Arnold. Yesterday, it was pro-abort moderate George Pataki. Today, it's "Republicans for Choice":
... Our first choice, Rudy Giuliani, did not win. He ran a campaign with a risky strategy and it didn't work. But our number two choice did win...John McCain. McCain came in second in a survey of our membership.

While he is personally "pro life" he has time and again reached out and worked with people across the spectrum. We know we can work with him to create common ground that will allow moderates and conservatives to come together to rebuild the GOP.

RFC joins with Rudy Giuliani in asking our supporters to consider McCain as they go to vote over the next few weeks...

Much like the saying we get to pick our friends but we don't get to pick our families, candidates don't get to pick the people who endorse them.

The announcement by RFC specifically said that "McCain is prolife."

As far as his class of endorsers, how about Sam Brownback, Tom Coburn, and (as of today) former Governor Tommy Thompson.

The real test will be to how the McCain campaign reacts to that endorsement. We'll see if McCain rejects the RFC endorsement as strongly as Romney rejected the Massachusetts Right to Life endorsement.

Jay, I think I remember you retracting your suggestion that Catholics Against Rudy put up a "Mission Accomplished" banner. Because as soon as we put up that banner, McCain will be naming Rudy as his Veep. I don't know if that will happen, but this is probably even worse.

Larry, there's a good reason "Republicans for Choice" prefer McCain. He's someone they can work with on their issue. They operate very stealthfully when they can't get an openly pro-abortion candidate like Rudy through.
