Republican Elites Run from Romney

Mitt Romney broke the tape in the race for Iowa just ahead of Rick Santorum. The closeness of the results, however, hasn't stopped some in the religious wing of the GOP from worrying about Romney representing the Republican Party in November.  According to a story published by Politico, a coterie of influential Christian Republicans has been invited to a confab next weekend at the Texas ranch of Paul Pressler.

Mitt Romney broke the tape in the race for Iowa just ahead of Rick Santorum. The closeness of the results, however, hasn't stopped some in the religious wing of the GOP from worrying about Romney representing the Republican Party in November.

According to a story published by Politico, a coterie of influential Christian Republicans has been invited to a confab next weekend at the Texas ranch of Paul Pressler. The invitation to the conference was reprinted by Politico:

You and your spouse are cordially invited to a private meeting with national conservative leaders of faith at the ranch of Paul and Nancy Pressler near Brenham, Texas, with the purpose of attempting to unite and to come to a consensus on which Republican presidential candidate or candidates to support, or which not to support.

Those reportedly set to accept the invitation include James Dobson (founder of Focus on the Family, now head of Family Talk), Don Wildmon (American Family Association), Gary Bauer (American Values), Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention, Christian Zionist leader John Hagee of San Antonio, and Kelly Shackelford of the Plano-based Liberty Institute (the Texas affiliate of Focus on the Family).
