So far, Log Cabin has not made a decision whether to endorse Romney-Ryan. Eight years ago, the group chose not to endorse President George W. Bush for reelection.
After Saturday's announcement that Ryan was Romney's pick for vice president, Log Cabin issued this statement:
"Overall, while Log Cabin Republicans have not completed the endorsement process for the 2012 presidential election, this is a choice that all Republicans can be excited about, and which sends a good message about the kind of campaign Governor Romney wants to run, and the kind of president Governor Romney wants to be.”
From Mitt Gets Worse founders David Brock of American Bridge and Rick Jacobs of Courage Campaign Super PAC:
Log Cabin Republicans Letter
"In just 24 hours, more than 15,000 people have joined our effort urging the Log Cabin Republicans to refrain from endorsing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. We have enormous respect for the LCR and all they've done to make life better for LGBT Americans. After examining their records, we're certain that under a Romney-Ryan administration, things would get worse.
Much worse. We're hopeful that LCR will live up to their reputation for independence and stand up for what they know is right. After all, If they didn’t endorse George W. Bush, why would they endorse Romney-Ryan, whose policies are as bad or worse than Bush's for LGBT people?”
The petition, available HERE, was sent the afternoon of August 14th, and has already seen more than 15,000 people sign to support the effort.
Mitt Gets Worse is an oral history project and rapid response campaign launched last month by American Bridge 21st Century and Courage Campaign Super PAC to educate voters about Mitt Romney’s extreme anti-LGBT agenda.
