Looks like I’m the only EFMer not in Washington for the Values Voter Summit, so I figured I’d pitch in with this good news, via The Corner:
I just got my hands on an advance press release from the Romney camp that will be hitting the Value Voters in the morning: Jack Wilkie, longtime pro-life activist and one of the founders of the National Right to Life Committee, has endorsed Romney.
Also notable about Wilkie? He’s former a Brownback supporter.
In a Wilkie statement provided by the Romney campaign, Wilkie says, “Unlike other candidates who only speak to the importance of confronting the major social issues of the day, Governor Romney has a record of action in defending life. Every decision he made as Governor was on the side of life. I know he will be the strong pro-life President we need in the White House,” said Dr. Willke. “Governor Romney is the only candidate who can lead our pro-life and pro-family conservative movement to victory in 2008.”
Not a bad close to Romney’s night in Washington. There may have been some murmuring during his speech, but a man who has devoted his life to protecting the defenseless buys Romney’s conversion story.
