George W. Bush's Christian Conservative Base

NPR's Peter Kenyon reports from Annandale, in Northern Virginia that Texas Governor George W. Bush's victory over rival, Arizona Senator John McCain, is due largely to the support of Christian conservatives. Voters in that state appeared to have reacted to McCain's hard-hitting speech on Monday, in which he branded two top Christian political figures as "agents of intolerance."
