California Pro-Life Council Owes Chuck DeVore and Me an Apology
Maybe it is their lack of reading comprehension that led the California Pro-Life Council to endorse Carly Fiorina over Chuck DeVore. DeVore has a strong pro-life record. Fiorina does not.
The conservative leader of Red State web-site has now asked Devore to please consider stepping down in order to stop the splitting of the pro-life vote and giving the nomination to extreme pro-abortion candidate, Campbell.
The California Pro-Life Council is telling people in California I have called for Chuck DeVore to consider stepping down. I’ve done no such thing and on the lies and damn lies category, I’d put it in the damn lies category considering CPLC is a bought and paid for subsidiary of the Fiorina campaign.
As I’ve said repeatedly, I’m standing with Chuck. In fact, in the CNN interview CPLC is touting, I made that clear again and simply said, “Look, if Chuck DeVore hasn’t gone up in the polls within two weeks significantly, I’ll be with Carly Fiorina because Tom Campbell is that bad.” I said that two days ago.
We’ll see what the trends in the race are in two weeks, but if they are consistent I’ll be calling on Fiorina to bail, not Chuck — he’s the only one moving up in the polls.
California Pro-Life Council owes Chuck DeVore and me an apology for lying about what I’ve said to help their own candidate. Personally, I think they need to send a second email to the exact same list saying that, at a minimum, they are in error or, to be more honest, they are totally distorting what I said to help Fiorina.
Shame on them.
