Most by now have heard the results of yesterday's Iowa caucus. Romney was favored to win and indeed he did - but only by 8 votes. Rick Santorum virtually tied that vote - no small feat for one considered to be quite the underdog coming into the caucus. Following behind them were Paul, Gingrich, Perry, Bachman and Huntsman (in that descending order).
I understand that Michele Bachman suspended her campaign. In her remarks, she urged unity behind the eventual GOP nominee to defeat the Obama Hell Bill (my term, not hers). I have the utmost respect for that lady.
Now I'll preface these next few statements by reminding one and all that this blog is NOT a "501c-anything". That means I can voice all sorts of endorsements without running afoul of Infernal Robbery Syndicate.
At this time, I am voicing support for Rick Santorum. For a handy checklist of the candidates' positions on key life/moral issues, you may visit this guide produced by the Family Research Council. I strongly suspect that many of Bachman's supporters will drift towards Santorum. I find the other candidates, for their own reasons, to be inferior to Santorum.
NOW FOR THE MARYLAND NEWS
It has come to my attention that State Senator Nancy Jacobs is running for US Congress. She has her sights set on the seat currently held by pro-abortion Dutch Ruppersberger in Maryland's 2nd Congressional District (east of Baltimore, snaking from Harford County down to Glen Burnie and Severn). She is slated to make her official announcement tomorrow, Jan 5th, 11:00am at Jad's Caddy Shack in Essex, MD. She's solidly pro-life and deserves our support.
