Politico reports that Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman will endorse Rudy Giuliani for President. I see this as a natural alliance of moderate, but strong-on-defense Republicans. Some will find significance in the fact that Coleman is pro-life; his endorsement may help Giuliani in that regard, although no one thinks of Coleman as a member of the “religious right.” Maybe so, but I think it mostly reflects the fact that abortion is not the all-consuming issue among Republicans that many reporters want it to be. Norm is a sincere pro-lifer whose conviction is based in part on personal experience. But for him, as for many other Republicans–like me–the issues of national defense and economic growth take priority.
