Sources in Washington D.C. tell me that Barack Obama is meeting with religious leaders in Chicago, including influential mega-pastor TD Jakes and prominent conservative Catholic constitutional lawyer Doug Kmiec. They are in the meeting with Obama. More information to come here on The Brody File.
This meeting is taking place in Chicago this afternoon. Kmiec and Jakes are huge names in the Christian community. This is one more example of how Obama is not just bringing in the 'religious left' into his coalition. He wants to bring in conservative figures, too. McCain has some work to do.
More on TD Jakes here.
Kmiec is pro-life and has come out in support of Obama. More on Kmiec here.
