A key Iowa social conservatives group announced Tuesday it will not endorse former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney or businessman Herman Cain, but is still evaluating if it would back one of the other candidates.
The Family Leader, which hosted a forum that six Republican candidates attended last Saturday, said in a statement that its board had narrowed its choices of an endorsement to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and ex-senator Rick Santorum (Penn). The statement said the group would not consider endorsing Romney, who the group criticized for skipping its event.
The group said it opted against Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) because he does not support constitutional amendments banning gay marriage and abortion, and said they had concerns about Cain on life, marriage, foreign policy, and presidential readiness. Both Cain and Paul had attended the forum

Life and Marriage disqualify Cain, but not Newt? ROFL
Yes I found that “strange”.
Inmates Out Walking Around = IOWA
If a so-called family leader endorses Gingrich he should be laughed at.
“The Family Leader” is that POS Bob Vanderplaat’s outfit. Bobby is a first class Huckleeite.
Newt's original support for ESCR is disturbing. Then again, Newt has never been known for being a social conservative.
So, outside of Newt, they’re only willing to endorse those candidates that have signed their pledge? What a surprise.
"So what Im saying is, it ultimately gets down to a choice that that family or that mother has to make. Not me as president. Not some politician. Not a bureaucrat. It gets down to that family. And whatever they decide, they decide. I shouldnt try to tell them what decision to make for such a sensitive decision.
Not sure if this is still his position, since his positions seem to be in constant flux.
Why wasn’t baby Jesus born in Iowa?
Because they couldn’t find three wise men.
Why are there fences around Iowa’s football fields?
So the cheerleaders don’t graze during half time.
Why is Chicago the Windy City?
Because Iowa sucks.
And you might have problems with being a liar. But that’s just par for the course.
Irrelevant Outlanders Wanting Affirmation = IOWA
Liar? I submitted a quote and a link? Want me to post a video too?
Cain is very prolife. You need to either stop lying or get with the program. One or the other.
Gosh, which do you think was the tipping point that disqualified Cain? Ironic that Presidential readiness was last on the list...seems to be true for Cain backers, too.
Of course, we have a President now who wasn't ready for it, so what harm can one more do? Right?
You are a liar. That Cain quote was regarding whether a family would choose to give an unplanned child up for adoption, not whether to abort it.
