WASHINGTON, DC — Today Iowa voters endorsed National Organization for Marriage (NOM) pledge supporter and marriage defender Michele Bachmann. Further three out of the four top vote-getters signed the National Organization for Marriage's Marriage Pledge.

"Today, Iowans showed the country that judges do not speak for the people and that Iowans, like the majority of the country, support marriage as the union of one man and one woman," said Brian Brown, president of NOM.

In the days before the straw poll, NOM, joined by the Susan B. Anthony List and Family Research Council, visited 22 cities across Iowa urging Iowans to go to Ames and vote for a pro-marriage candidate. Iowans responded by supporting Bachmann, Pawlenty and Santorum, all of whom signed the marriage pledge.
