From Hotline On Call at the National Journal:
Prominent social conservative leader James Dobson is switching horses in the race to replace retiring Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) after he misunderstood one candidate’s position on abortion.
Last week, Dobson endorsed KY Sec/State Trey Grayson (R), the establishment favorite to take over for Bunning. He did so because Dobson believed Grayson was better on abortion issues than ophthalmologist Rand Paul (R), who leads some recent polls.
In fact, Paul is pro-life himself. Dobson acknowledged the mistake and blamed GOP officials for spreading false information.
