What do Evangelicals want when it comes to a Republican candidate for President in 2012?
In an email to The Brody File, the CEO of Concerned Women for America, Penny Nance tells me the following:
“Evangelicals want someone with: Sarah Palin’s looks and courage, Tim Pawlenty’s Midwest sensibilities, Mike Huckabee’s heart, Chris Christie’s boldness, Rick Santorum’s moral compass, Mitt Romney’s business experience, Newt Gingrich’s brains, Bobby Jindal’s common sense, and Mike Pence’s record. What’s not acceptable is four more years of someone who is economically and socially driving the nation off the cliff.”
Folks, that about sums it up in a nutshell. In other words, Evangelicals have a tough decision ahead of them in 2012. Many of these candidates have at least one strong quality that will give them a serious look among Evangelicals.
The question is will there be a consensus Evangelical type candidate? The answer is no. And you know what that means? Utter confusion as we head into the “GOP Mosh Pit.”
