Mitt Romney may be feeling the heat from a recent vote by a group of evangelical leaders to back Rick Santorum’s bid for president.
Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, who once campaigned as a social moderate, is now talking up his opposition to marriage equality as he stumps in South Carolina.
ThinkProgress quotes Romney in a speech this morning objecting to President Obama’s decision not to mount a legal defense of DOMA:
“This is a president also who is attempting to pave the way for same-sex marriage in our nation by refusing through his attorney general to defend the Defense of Marriage Act,” Romney said. “I will defend that Act and I will also defend marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman.”
Just keep track kids. This is what Mittens is saying now. Who knows what he’ll say in the general election…
