I'll let Saul speak for himself, and maybe he would abandon his pro-life candidate for a pro-choice candidate with those trappings. If he's anything like the other pro-life one-issue voters I know, I'd say it's very unlikely.
Saul himself said being pro-choice is a "deal killer." If that's not a one-issue voter, I don't know what is.
He probably wouldn't abandon a pro-life candidate for a pro-choice candidate because of an offensive stand on Citizen's United (or some other issue), but he may choose not to vote for either of them. An issue can be a litmus test without it being the sole issue of importance. You can have several litmus test requirements. Some of the ronpauls are examples of this. That's why neither major candidate can win their votes. Romney isn't isolationist enough and Obama is too communist.
