Paul Weyrich, Endorses Mitt Romney for 08'

Romney Gets Major Backer on the Right By MICHAEL LUO
Published: November 06, 2007

Mitt Romney's presidential campaign announced yesterday an endorsement from the man whom some consider the father of the religious right, Paul M. Weyrich, chairman of the Free Congress Foundation and a founder of the Moral Majority.
Mr. Weyrich, who also founded the Heritage Foundation, had been critical of talk this year among Christian conservative leaders about possibly bolting the Republican Party and backing a third-party candidate if Rudolph W. Giuliani, a supporter of abortion rights, is the nominee.

Now it appears that Mr. Weyrich is backing up that criticism with action, lining up behind Mr. Romney.
