43. I doubt it. Robertson has already said he cannot recommend
supporting him, and although I haven't heard, I'd bet the rest of the fundie preachers will join him in that opinion.

I'd like to believe there are still reasonable Pubs out there, but if a candidate has the RW against him, it would be nearly impossible for his to win the primaries!
