For some reason evangelical leaders have all voted to rally behind…Rick Santorum.
COLUMBIA, South Carolina (Reuters) – Influential evangelical Christian leaders on Saturday endorsed Rick Santorum for the Republican U.S. presidential nomination, in an attempt to strengthen him as the more conservative alternative to front-runner Mitt Romney.
At a weekend meeting at a ranch outside Houston, Texas, the group of 150 conservatives agreed on the third ballot to support the former Pennsylvania senator.
I suppose evangelicals have a hard time with the usual degrading compromise when it means backing a schismatic cultist who tends to forget whatever promises he made last week. So noble failure it is.
