Many people were likely surprised by Sen. Sam Brownbackâ€™s endorsement today of John McCain for president, given the Arizonaâ€™s rough relationship with the religious right. But Brownback argued that McCain is the most fiscally conservative candidate, has the best foreign policy experience, was right on the strategy for Iraq and takes a tough anti-abortion stand, Associated Press reported. â€œIf you want a guy to change Washington, John McCainâ€™s the guy to do it,â€ Brownback said. But Brownback also made a practical argument for conservative Christians: McCain is â€œthe best pro-life candidate to beat Hillary Clinton.â€
Also on this crazy day, Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson endorsed Rudy Giuliani, despite their differences on abortion and gay rights. McCainâ€™s response to that news: â€œEvery once in a while, Iâ€™m left speechless. This is one of those times.â€
