For former Christian Coalition head Ralph Reed to succeed in his first bid for public office, he's going to have to pray for the help of voters like Norma Saunders. Saunders, 83, has heard about Reed's ties to Jack Abramoff, the disgraced Washington lobbyist. But, she said, she still plans to vote for Reed in today's Republican primary for Georgia lieutenant governor.

Reed, 35, said that the switch would allow him to take a more direct role in Republican politics and that he plans to focus on electing candidates who oppose abortion.

Microsoft Corp. said Friday that it had severed ties with Ralph Reed, a Republican lobbyist and former head of the Christian Coalition who is running for lieutenant governor of Georgia. "Ralph Reed is no longer on retainer with Microsoft," company spokeswoman Ginny Terzano said.

By any account, Ralph Reed and Mario Cuomo make an odd couple. Reed, Christian Coalition founder and conservative political strategist, became the face of the family values movement in the past decade. And Cuomo, former Democratic governor of New York, came to the public's attention for his liberal social stances and opposition to the death penalty. But they shared the stage Friday at a fund-raiser in Irvine for a local mentoring program.

It pretty much came down to "Dragnet" vs. "NYPD Blue." Jack Valenti, head of the Motion Picture Assn. of America, defended the moral lessons and downplayed the sometimes steamy visuals of the latter, while Ralph Reed, executive director of the Christian Coalition, waxed nostalgically about the straight-arrow style and on-screen propriety of the former. "I think 'NYPD Blue' is the finest-crafted show on television," Valenti said.

The Christian Coalition's Ralph Reed Jr. and Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman, an Orthodox Jew, have given their support to a new group designed to bring its religious perspective to the growing political debate over values and public policy. The group's membership and platform are decidedly conservative. However, Orthodox Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, founder of the new Center for Judeo-Christian Values in America, said he hopes that the group will eventually encompass liberal viewpoints as well.

WELFARE SCARE: Fearing that Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) will use a parliamentary procedure to avoid a full-scale debate on reforming welfare, 40 Democratic senators have asked Dole not to attach the Senate's welfare plan to the budget reconciliation bill. Folding that bill into the massive budget measure would rob the nation of the open debate it deserves on the sweeping GOP effort to dramatically overhaul the welfare system, the Democrats argued in a letter to Dole.
