Maggie Gallagher on "T-Paw's Odd Absence" from NOM's Marriage Pledge


Kathryn Lopez at NRO's The Corner blog interviews NOM Chairman Maggie Gallagher briefly on our new marriage pledge:

I’ve sorta tired of pledges, but it does seem bizarre that Tim Pawlenty hasn’t signed onto the National Organization of Marriage’s marriage pledge. The pledge is straightforward. And Governor Pawlenty does come from Minnesota, which has been a ground zero for the marriage debate lately. Pawlenty knows this is not a mere rhetorical debate for primary times.

Maggie Gallagher, who is chair of NOM, says [...] “At this point, the people of Iowa need to know that Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are the only candidates willing to step forward and pledge to protect marriage in this campaign. We hope Governor Pawlenty will reconsider.”
