MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The doctoring that physician Randy Brinson does these days is as much on political causes and candidates as it is on patients.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The doctoring that physician Randy Brinson does these days is as much on political causes and candidates as it is on patients.

The Montgomery physician has written a book about how he started Redeem the Vote in 2003 to register young evangelicals to vote. By his account, it has grown into advising candidates from both political parties and a broad range of political groups. That broad range stretches from Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee to the National Education Association, a traditional Democratic ally.

Brinson's book, "Redeem the Vote, A Political Revolution," starts with Brinson and his wife Pam working with contemporary Christian entertainers to get young evangelicals motivated enough to register to vote and turn out for the 2004 presidential election. That contributed to Republican George Bush's re-election and it still keeps Brinson involved in state and national politics.
