|(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans statement on the Republican presidential debate held last night at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
“Americans tired of President Obama’s failed leadership tuned in to the GOP debate looking for an alternative to the gimmicks and empty rhetoric they will hear in tonight’s speech before Congress. They were not disappointed,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director. “While the candidates onstage represent a broad cross-section of the Republican family, all were united in the belief that our government is spending beyond its means and making too many promises it can’t keep. Despite our differences, Republicans today are united in our mission to send Barack Obama back to Chicago and get our country back on the right track.”
Cooper continues, “Several of the candidates acquitted themselves well in the debate, such as Governor Huntsman’s declaration of independence from documents like the National Organization for Marriage’s anti-federalist marriage pledge. Log Cabin Republicans urge all candidates to be relentless in their focus on the Obama’s greatest weaknesses – jobs and the economy. Divisive special interest pledges like NOM’s only distract from that message and turn off the voters we need to be including to win the White House.”
Log Cabin Republicans is the only Republican organization dedicated to representing the interests of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans and their allies. The more than 30-year old organization has state and local chapters nationwide, a full-time office in Washington, DC, a federal political action committee and state political action committees.
