Evangelical Leaders Throw Support to Santorum

Some 150 influential Evangelical leaders meeting in Texas have endorsed the presidential bit of Rick Santorum shortly ahead of the South Carolina primary. The group met at a ranch outside of Houston in an effort to consolidate their support behind one candidate rather than splinter the conservative vote. Evangelicals and social conservatives make up more than half of the Republican electorate in South Carolina. Those attending include Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson, American Family Association founder Don Wildmon, and American Values president Gary Bauer.
