The Sioux City Journal reporting tonight:
Vander Plaats was joined in Cedar Falls by Brian Brown, leader of the National Organization for Marriage, one of the primary funders of the 2010 push to remove three judges from the Iowa Supreme Court.
He said their opposition to gay marriage has gained steam in states across the nation and Iowans would be like other states in banning gay marriage if they had the chance.
"All we're asking for is the people of Iowa have the same opportunity the people of 31 other states have had, to have a vote on it," Brown said.
NOM worked with the Family Leader on a pledge signed by all major candidates except U.S. Rep. Ron Paul to support traditional marriage. Brown said caucus goers need to know Paul's words and actions don't make him a good candidate for family values.
