fotf.jpgThe New York Times reported this morning that the McCain campaign recently requested a meeting with Focus on the Family founder James Dobson.

‘In July, when James C. Dobson, the influential founder of Focus on the Family, said on his radio broadcast that he, too, might drop his staunch opposition to a McCain presidency, campaign operatives quickly called to express their thanks and ask Dr. Dobson to meet alone with the candidate, a spokesman for Dr. Dobson said.’

This weekend’s John McCain/Sarah Palin rally in Colorado Springs would seem the ideal time for such a meeting, no? But Focus on the Family spokesman Gary Schneeberger says the McCain campaign has not been in touch about setting up any meetings between McCain–or his aides–and Dobson or Focus staff while in town on Saturday. “We’d be open to it if it was something the campaign would want to do talk about, just like we would for any candidate, but this sounds like a fly in fly out thing and I don’t know if anything will happen, he says.

Schneeberger adds that Dobson is out of town on book leave at the moment and won’t be around this weekend.
