Pastor Fuiten to endorse Huckabee for president
Posted by David Postman at 3:32 PM
Bothell Pastor Joe Fuiten tomorrow will endorse former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee during a Bellevue appearance by the Republican presidential candidate. National Christian conservative leaders have made news in recent days with presidential endorsements. Pat Robertson announced he's backing Rudy Giuliani and the National Right to Life Committee backed former Sen. Fred Thompson.
Fuiten said in a statement released by Huckabee's campaign:
"Mike Huckabee is a person of judgment and character who can be relied upon to make strong decisions as President. ... He represents my values."
Fuiten was state chairman for Social Conservatives for Bush-Cheney in 2004 and an increasingly prominent voice in conservative politics. He is pastor of Cedar Park Church in Bothell.
Huckabee arrives in the area as polls show him surging among Republican candidates for president. Huckabee will be doing several events tomorrow, including a media availability before he speaks to King County Republicans at their annual fall dinner.
