Team Romney distracted by early-state poll numbers as Huckabee quietly “consolidates” religious right

” And who is this Yoest person praising Huckabee and telling people about his great get?”—asks eye of eyeon08.com in post titled Huckabee consolidates the religious right

She is the communications director for the Family Research Council, the advocacy arm of the James Dobson media empire.

Oh yeah. And the American Spectator and Jonathan Martin are reporting that Dobson is going to endorse Huckabee. And one of his communications underlings is praising Huckabee. And independent sources at FRC confirmed the story to me, but say that the Mitt Romney supporters at FRC are fighting it. Indeed, Paul Weyrich and some others are denying it.

That sounds like a consolidation of the religious right in a way that could be worth a good 5-10% in places like Iowa and South Carolina. And in Iowa, Huckabee is in 2nd, and this kind of thing could include votes coming out of Romney’s hide. In South Carolina, it is less clear, but it seems likely that it would come out of the hides of both Romney and Fred Thompson … etc.

The emphasis is ours, all ours.

yours &c.

    Dobson has denied that he is endorsing Huckabee.
    Huckabee is so desperate for endorsements he has to lie about them now?
