Kerry to Reach Out to 'People on the Right'

Candidate's new strategy embraces conservatives. He seems unconcerned 
about ruffling liberals

ALBUQUERQUE — Counting on his liberal base to stick by him, Sen. John F. 
Kerry plans to aggressively court more conservative voters with a 
message that emphasizes traditional values of service, faith and family.

Following his pick last week of a running mate with potential appeal to 
rural communities, the presumed Democratic presidential nominee said he 
was not content to target the narrow band of swing voters that the two 
parties were expected to fight over in roughly 20 swing states.

"I'm going to talk to people on the right," Kerry told The Times on 
Friday during a joint interview with his vice presidential pick, Sen. 
John Edwards. "I want to talk to conservatives."
