HOUSTON — The second shoe fell last week when the Christian-conservative “Values Voters” met in Washington. Out of 5,775 opinion votes cast, national frontrunner Rudy Giuliani finished next to last, with only two percent, in a field of six contenders.
The Christian right is far from reaching consensus. Meanwhile Latino evangelicals, a crucial swing bloc, have quietly left Republican hopefuls to fend for themselves.
