Keep the faith, baby

Republican U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann last week announced the endorsement of her presidential candidacy more than 100 Iowa pastors and faith leaders.

“From the start of this campaign I have promised to take the values of Iowans to the White House,” said Bachmann. “I learned those values growing up in Waterloo, and I am grateful for the pastors and faith leaders who continue to teach them to new generations of Iowans. Thank you to each of these men and women who are standing with me in fighting for the future of our great nation.”

According to Rep. Bachmann's campaign website, "Many of the evangelical leaders offered support after... witnessing how her faith guides her strong leadership on critical issues such as marriage, life, and the overbearing impact of government policies on the family."
