GOProud: If Michele Bachmann Is The GOP Nominee, We'll Back Her
GOProud today announced that while they have "concerns" about Rep. Michele Bachmann, electing ANY Republican candidate over Barack Obama is their primary goal. Therefore, Bachmann will have the backing of GOProud, should she win the nomination. So what if the nominee believes you are "part of Satan" and that you deserve to be legislated against at every opportunity?
In an interview with Politico, GOProud Chairman Christopher Barron said he was "concerned" and "troubled" by Bachmann's record and past statements about gay issues, but would not "be part of any 'war against Michele Bachmann.'" GOProud officials generally stress that sending a Republican to the White House trumps a candidate's view on one issue. "We are committed to defeating Barrack Obama in 2012," LaSalvia said. "And want to be helpful to whoever secures the GOP nomination."
