When the Georgia Right to Life organization explored the positions and voting records of the Republican candidates, they found just one man who combined both electability and a solid, consistent pro-life record: Mike Huckabee. Here's the press release from Insider Advantage Georgia:
Parting company with National Right To Life, which has endorsed Fred Thompson, Georgia Right To Life is giving its endorsement to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, the organization announced Friday.
The big issue for the Georgia group: Huckabee’s support of the proposed Human Life Amendment in Georgia, also known as the Paramount Right to Life Amendment.
“We appreciate and respect the pro-life positions of all pro-life candidates,” the Georgia group said in its statement. “We commend Rep. Duncan Hunter, Dr. Alan Keyes and Rep. Tom Tancredo for their strong pro-life positions, but find that Gov. Mike Huckabee is the only candidate which qualified under Georgia Right To Life PAC guidelines.
“We examined three factors in our decision to endorse Gov. Mike Huckabee: the positions of the candidates on the life issues, their records on the life issues and their ability to win.”
