Catholic Floridians: Make sure it’s not your parish! (I don’t know the name–will post when I do.)
Kerry plans to deliver a new speech on faith this weekend in Florida, McCurry said, focusing on an explanation of his values.
“The fact that Senator Kerry is a person of faith is something that might help voters who are undecided,” McCurry said.
Kerry has been explaining it more in recent weeks as he campaigns in socially conservative areas like rural Ohio. At a town hall meeting Saturday in Xenia, he talked about taking his rosary into battle during the Vietnam War. “I will bring my faith with me to the White House and itwill guide me,” Kerry said.
The faith, the baseball, the hunting all come at the end of a long fight against Kerry’s liberal elite image – an image promoted by his political enemies but perhaps aided by Kerry as well. The candidate disregarded concerns from other Democrats that he shouldn’t go windsurfing or vacation at his homes on Nantucket and in Idaho’s ski country.
