Pat Robertson Warns GOP Candidates Against Far-Right

By the Web Editors 10-25-2011

Earlier this month, Pat Robertson told the AP that he will no longer be offering political endorsements. Today, Robertson stated that if GOP candidates embrace positions on the extreme far-right, they will be unelectable. "[Y]ou appeal to the narrow base and they'll applaud the daylights out of what you're saying and then you hit the general election and they say 'no way' and then the Democrat, whoever it is, is going to just play these statements to the hilt. They've got to stop this! It's just so counterproductive!" Robertson said on today's 700 Club.
