Who's the strongest anti-Rudy candidate?



StembergerIn Florida, destitute John McCain and and Mike Huckabee are virtually invisible, and neither Mitt Romney nor Fred Thompson has managed to get social conservatives to unite behind them. So if you're a Christian conservative political activist how in the world do you take out a moderate like Rudy Giuliani?


"For conservatives we’re kind of in a complex chess match, and we’re one move away from being in check mate,’’ lamented John Stemberger of the Florida Family Policy Council. "Romney is the frontrunner (to take on Giuliani) right now, but I think Thompson has the best chance of overtaking Giuliani." No, that's not an endorsesment from Stemberger, just his analysis of the race.
