Santorum Wins Evangelical Backing

Hosted by

Former Utah Governor and Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman dropped out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination today. Calling for Party unity, he endorsed Mitt Romney, calling him the "candidate who is best-equipped to defeat the president and return conservative leadership to the White House."  But a group of evangelical leaders met in Texas over the weekend to find agreement on a candidate other than Romney. Their choice is former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. One of those at the conclave was Richard Land, President of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.
