Ted Cruz won two new endorsements from conservative legend Richard Viguerie and from the National Organization for Marriage (which I co-founded), which is particularly influential in Iowa where they partnered with Iowan evangelicals to defeat three judges who voted for gay marriage.

The Washington Examiner reports that Brian Brown, president of NOM, said in a statement that the choice was difficult given the many pro-marriage candidates but that the need to defeat Donald Trump made it necessary to choose:

“We are endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz because of the urgent need for a marriage champion to emerge from the crowded field and capture the nomination,” Brown wrote. “Unless conservatives come together behind a full-spectrum candidate — pro-marriage, pro-life, strong national defense, etc. — there is a real risk that someone like Donald Trump could win the nomination, which would be disastrous. We need a president with a proven track record of matching strong principles with concrete action, someone who will champion the fight for marriage, not walk away from it.”

Brown wrote that Trump “folded like a cheap suit” when it came to the issue of marriage, and that electing a “pro-marriage” president would mean NOM’s supporters would have an excellent chance of reversing the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage nationwide.
