Rudy attempting to court the Southern wingnuts
I don’t know what he’s thinking, but the good ole boys aren’t going to vote for him. (Time):
Rudy has never been one to listen to conventional wisdom, and lately at least, he has been turning up the heat in southern conservative political circles.
In just the last week, he endorsed Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry for re-election and met with Evangelicals in Florida…The Catholic mayor is also busy burnishing his ties to Christian conservatives.
Pat Robertson has said Rudy would make “a good president” and the mayor was a headliner for a fundraising committee supporting former Christian Coalition executive Ralph Reed in his bid to be Georgia’s lieutenant governor.
Last week, Giuliani dropped by an Orlando meeting of the Global Pastors Network and told the Evangelical leaders that “only God knows” if he will run for president. The group offered their prayers for him and he responded in kind, showing an openly devout side not many people had seen before: “I can’t tell you from my heart how much I appreciate what you are doingâ€”saving people, telling them about Jesus Christ and bringing them to God.”
