Conservatives rally behind Rudy


Former NY Conservative Party leader and current American Conservative Union (ACU) board member, state Sen. Serphin Maltese has come out in support of Giuliani. While at the CPAC conference  in DC, Maltese had this to say

“I am one of the strongest pro-life advocates in New York state. My bills have opposed same-sex marriage. But Rudy Giuliani is now not running for mayor — he’s running for president of the United States to protect our country under attack. And I have to put some of those (social conservative) considerations aside

I feel the overwhelming concern for all of us and our constituents is the war against terror and protecting our country from the Islamic fascists.”

The heavily-conservative crowd must have agreed with Maltese’s assessment, since Giuliani came in second place in the convention’s often-cited straw poll of 1,705 attendees, a huge accomplishment considering Giuliani did not have campaign operatives or a team scouting the convention’s hall’s for support as the other candidates did.

Giuliani was in Iowa this past weekend, meeting with voters and fielding questions, proving to the pundits that he’s not writing off any state. One of his campaign advisors is former Iowa congressman, 2006 Iowa gubernatorial candidate, and noted conservative Jim Nussle. In fact, in might be worth noting the list of prominent conservatives supporting Giuliani:

Bush’s solicitor general Ted Olson, Steve Forbes, Jim Nussle, Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), Rep. George Radanovich (R-CA), former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Bill Simon, Rep. Candice Miller (R-MI), Rep. Pete Sessions (R-AL), Rep. David Dreier (R-CA), Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA), and Rep. Peter King (R-NY) are just a few of the many conservatives who have endorsed or signed up with the Giuliani campaign.

And the list is still growing as even movement conservatives are realizing that Guiliani is our best hope to lead our nation in these extraordinary times.
