NOM to Endorse Mitt Romney
The National Organization for Marriage will endorse Mitt Romney today, Politico reports:
In a statement, NOM president Brian Brown will urge conservatives to get behind Romney: "Now is the time for all people who recognize the importance of marriage to come together to support a true champion, Mitt Romney, against an incumbent who has done virtually everything in his power to undermine the institution of marriage."
"Governor Romney was an early signer of NOM’s presidential pledge which represents his commitment to the nation to take specific actions as president to preserve and protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman," Brown's message says ."President Obama has declared our nation’s marriage laws to be unconstitutional and not only has refused to defend them, his administration is actively working to repeal them in the courts. He’s come out against state constitutional amendments defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. And he has appointed leaders of the same-sex ‘marriage’ movement as national co-chairs of his reelection campaign."
Last week, documents were uncovered that showed Romney made donations to NOM (and Proposition 8) through an obscure Alabama PAC.
