Dobson Endorses Gallagher



James Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family and one of the biggest names among conservative Christians, is endorsing Tom Gallagher for governor. We assume this audio message released by the campaign is coming to a telephone and/or radio station near you:

"Hello everybody, this is Dr. James Dobson, and I am proudly endorsing Tom Gallagher for governor of Florida. In a day when moral standards are up for grabs, Tom will be a champion for the family. he will work to provide genuine school choice for every Florida child, and he understands that the courts must be reigned in. Please vote in the Sept. 5 primary for Tom Gallagher for governor."

On a related note, Buzz has been a bit surprised to see and hear of little or no absentee ballot effort by the Gallagher campaign. At a time when mailers are flooding the mailboxes of absentee ballot requesters, where's Gallagher?

Update: The Gallagher campaign says we're all wet on that absentee ballot matter. More than a million absentee ballot mailers have gone out, they say.
