|I will vote for Mike Huckabee Tuesday
|Please feel free to forward the following message from Joe Fuiten to the people on your personal lists.
I already voted for him in the Caucus. On Tuesday, I am going to vote for Mike Huckabee a second time. I will do so in spite of the virtually impossible odds of his winning. For me it will be a kind of last act to show the Republicans and the country that Evangelicals are a substantial force in America. I hope you will do the same.
When our primary is over and the time is right, I will almost certainly throw my support behind John McCain.
To you that already support McCain:
My vote for Huckabee on Tuesday will seem like a pointless act. It might be, but I want one more distinctive showing of conservative and Evangelical action.
To you that have joined me in supporting Huckabee:
My inclination to later support McCain might seem like a betrayal of what we have worked for these past months. If and when I announce for McCain, I will tell you the positive reasons why I may do that.
At this point, I will just note that Huckabee has not attacked McCain and McCain has not attacked Huckabee. Even with the election controversy here in Washington State, McCain's people have not added to the controversy. I appreciate how they have handled that. In the end, it is in our best interest if value voters and Republicans work together.
You should also know that our State Republican Chairman Luke Esser has my full support. I think he has been fair and even-handed.
Herein lies our greatest battle:
It would appear that Barack Obama is winning on the Democratic side. Click here to read an article from Investor's Business Daily, which will give you a bit of background. Obama's religion is raising a lot of questions. It shows what we are likely to be up against in the coming months.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
P.S. I am sure you know that even if you caucused, you can also vote in the Primary. Please be sure to check the box on your ballot envelope just above your signature. It is where you are required to indicate your party affiliation. If you don't check the box your vote will not be counted!
P.S.S. If you are a Pastor or church or class leader, please remember the election in your public prayers this Sunday.
