Fred Thompson Endorsed By The National Right To Life Committee

For a campaign that seems to have been struggling for the last couple weeks this should be a much needed boost. Click here to read the actual press release from the NRLC. Click here to read Fred’s response to the endorsement. And click here to read an interesting post entitled “What you should know about Fred’s NRLC endorsement (with highlights!!)” discussing the endorsement.
All in all, this is an endorsement all the candidates would have liked to have received but in reality only a couple of them really qualified. Of the frontrunners, the records of Giuliani and Romney immediately disqualified them. That only left Thompson, McCain, and Huckabee. I am not sure of the records of McCain and Huckabee but being from Tennessee I do know about Thompson’s record. I am not surprised that he received this endorsement. He has exhibited exactly the right understanding and position on the abortion issue in his voting throughout his political career. Hopefully now, the pro-life voters can get behind Thompson and propel him to win the nomination.
