Hate Preacher Tony Perkins: Evangelicals could support any of the GOP front-runners
Even though Family Research Council is listed as a hate group for their persistent anti-gay preaching. At FRC being pro family means being anti-gay, but Perkins remains a major rainmaker for the GOP.
Evangelical voters would likely accept and enthusiastically support any of the four front-running candidates for the Republican presidential nomination, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said Tuesday evening.
Perkins, an influential leader of social conservatives, suggested that Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R), and Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and Ron Paul (R-Texas) would each be acceptable to evangelicals.
“Yes, I think so,” Perkins told Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs, who asked if the four front-runners “would satisfy the evangelical right.”
“I think what’s going to happen is that, in the end, you’re going to see a much more unified, conservative voting bloc than you did in 2008,” he said. “What you’re going to see are conservatives rallying to a candidate that will beat and replace Barack Obama in the White House.”
