Question of the Day
A prominent gay Republican group is hesitantly backing Mitt Romney for president, calling it the right decision for the nation even as it slams his opposition to gay marriage and civil unions.
Log Cabin Republicans says it’s supporting Mr. Romney to put America and the economy first, but is only offering him a “qualified endorsement.” The group says it will focus its efforts instead on House and Senate candidates.
In its endorsement, Log Cabin Republicans says Mr. Romney might not be the candidate for voters who prioritize gay and lesbian issues. The group has long been critical of Mr. Romney and says it will continue challenging his support for a federal amendment banning gay marriage.
