Dobson Endorses Huckabee

After Mitt Romney pulled out of the race yesterday, the evangelical leader of Focus On The Family, James Dobson, gave his long-sought endorsement to Mike Huckabee. Dobson is the largest evangelical endorsee of Huckabee, most of whom have shied away from the candidate due to his admonitions that evangelicals should be more involved in poverty and environmental causes.
"The remaining candidate for whom I could vote is Governor Huckabee," Dobson said. "His unwavering positions on the social issues, notably the institution of marriage, the importance of faith and the sanctity of human life, resonate deeply with me and with many others ... Obviously, the governor faces an uphill struggle, given the delegates already committed to Senator McCain. Nevertheless, I believe he is our best remaining choice for president of the United States."
Dobson has been a vehement opponent of John McCain. Making his endorsement of Huckabee, he said that he did so as a private citizen, not as the head of his tax-exempt group. (But he still emailed them all to tell them about it.)
