It’s called a “courtesy call” (we think)

Brownback meets with Giuliani.

Topics: 2008 Elections, War Room, Sam Brownback, R-Kan., Rudy Giuliani,

At the Values Voter conference the other day, Republican Sen. Sam Brownback said: “I believe we need to be pro-life and whole life, that we have to stand for each and every life as being beautiful, unique, sacred, a child of a loving God, period. And it is sacred because it is. No more, no less. It is. It is human and that’s why it’s sacred — made in the image of God.”

We don’t agree with Brownback about much, but we don’t doubt the sincerity of his beliefs, either. That’s why we won’t be watching too breathlessly today as Rudy Giuliani meets with Brownback in the hopes of winning his endorsement for the GOP presidential nomination.

Would the fervently antiabortion Brownback, who dropped out of the race last week, really endorse a man who has supported abortion rights, particularly when there are other Republicans to endorse — hello, Gov. Huckabee! — whose views line up better with Brownback’s?

Sure doesn’t sound like it.

“Mayor Giuliani asked to meet with Sen. Brownback, and Sen. Brownback is happy to sit down with him,” Brownback spokesman Brian Hart tells the Associated Press. “Sen. Brownback is talking to a few people but doesn’t intend to endorse anyone right away.”
