Rudy's Team Signs a Star

Posted: Mar 28, 2007 11:27 AM

Ryan Sager reports that Steve Forbes had endorced Rudy Giuliani.  As Sager writes, this is very big news, because:

... Steve Forbes is a figure quite popular with the economic conservative wing of the Republican Party. He's famous, as conservatives all know, for championing a flat tax in his 1996 presidential campaign. (Is this the direction Rudy's moving in?)

Second, Mr. Forbes, when he ran again in 2000, underwent a transformation to try to make himself into the "family values" candidate in that race. Much less economics, much more home economics. (Work with me here, folks.)
