MEDIA ALERT: Charmaine Quoted in Human Events
Charmaine was quoted in an HE article by Ericka Andersen, Posted: 11/14/2007, NRLC Thompson Endorsement Splits Social Conservatives Even More,
On Fred Thompson’s National Right to Life Committee endorsement,
Yoest said the FRC finds NRLC’s endorsement of Thompson “interesting” and that “in the end what really matters is the candidate themselves and how well they are able to articulate their vision.”
Charmaine Yoest, Vice-President of Communications at the Family Research Council (FRC), said Giuliani’s candidacy is questionable right now despite his poll leads.
“People keep talking about Giuliani as the frontrunner…but he hasn’t been able to get higher than 30%…that means 70% of the GOP base is looking at other candidates,” said Yoest. “The polls in the actual primaries are showing a different story….in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina…Giuliani has a long way to go.”
On Fred Thompson, Andersen reported,
Thompson came under fire from pro-lifers recently when he recently said he would not support a human life amendment.
