Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay believes that conservative Republicans will face a difficult challenge if John McCain is elected president.

"His stance on global warming, immigration, campaign finance, affirmative action — it's just a whole list of things that is not going to appeal to conservative Republicans,” the Texas Republican told PolitickerCA.com.

“I’ve known McCain for 23 years, and McCain’s hard to swallow.

“And if he becomes president, teaming up with the Democrats, we're going to have a lot of work to do to stop them."

DeLay, who supported Mike Huckabee in the GOP primaries, said that despite his differences with McCain he still plans to vote for him because Democrat Barack Obama would be far worse.

"He's as far left as anyone who's ever run for president in this country,” DeLay said.

DeLay also said the choice of Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate was an “absolutely brilliant move” and urged the McCain campaign to “turn Palin loose … Quit handling her. Let her be Palin.”

DeLay represented a Texas district for more than 20 years before resigning from Congress in June 2006.
