Santorum "a bad candidate for president for
"Pandering to social conservatives as Santo-
rum has done does not represent a party that
champions individual liberty and nominating
Santorum would hurt the GOP by turning off
moderates, independents and younger voters,"
GOProud, meanwhile, conspicuously omitted
any reference to Santorum from the group's,
statement on the IoWa results, instead congratu-
lating only Romney and Texas Congressman
Ron Paul, R-Lake Jackson, who finished third.
"While there are certainly big differences be-
tween Governor Romney and Congressman
Paul, especially when it comes to foreign policy,
both chose to emphasize issues like the economy
and the size of government over demonizing
gay people/' GOProud Executive Director
Jimmy LaSalvia said. "We are pleased to see that
10 many Republicans in Iowa are focused on the
issues that unite us as conservatives, instead of
the side show issues."
Schlein's decision to invite LaSalvia to speak
at what was then the Log Cabin chapter's annual
dinner in November was another factor that
prompted the national Log Cabin group to oust
him. Asked directly this week whether he would

support Santorum if he's the nominee, LaSalvia
said in an email, "Asking me if I would support
Rick Santorum if he's the Republican nominee is
like asking me if I would support Kim Kar-
dashian if she's the nominee — they both have
about the same chance of getting the nomina-
Omar Narvaez, president of Stonewall De-
mocrats of Dallas, declined to directly address
Schlein'S comments about Santorum.
"I don't personally know Rob Schlein," Nar-
vaez said. "Stonewall Democrats of Dallas is
committed [to] and focused on re-electing Pres-
ident Barack Obama regardless of who the Re-
publican nominee is."
Earlier, Narvaez said he was glad Perry had
chosen not to drop out of the race; despite the
governor's disappointing fifth-place finish in
Iowa. Narvaez said the more candidates stay in,
the more difficult it will be for any one of them
to pull away
"They're not cohesive in any way" Narvaez
said of the GOP, "and I think the longer they
can't decide who they are, what they're trying to
do, is better for Democrats everywhere.
"The more they tear each other apart and in-
fight and can't get along, it's better for Democ-
rats/" he added. "They're just giving us all the
ammunition We're going to need to fight them
Equality Texas, the statewide LGBT advocacy
group, issued a sta tement Wednesday morning
rejoicing in Perry's poor showing in Iowa, de-
nouncing his "homophobic pandering" and pre-
dicting that he "will not be the next president of
the United States."
"Governor Perry's homophobic pandering
did not resonate with Iowa voters just as it does
not resonate in Texas," Equality Texas said in its
Statement. "As Governor Perry returns to Texas
to reflect on his campaign, it is our hope at
Equality Texas that he will also reflect on what
Texans really want for their state.... It is time our
governor recognize that homophobia and trans-
phobia have no place in our great state and he
should join in the effort to eradicate them from
all public policy."
After Perry announced that he would remain
in the race. Equality Texas Deputy Director
Chuck Smith told Dallas Voice he believes the
governor's campaign for president could ulti-
mately benefit the LGBT community in his home
"It's easy to show that most people don't be-
lieve: that," Smith said of Perry's anti-gay views.
"He's at a level of vitriol toward gay people that
simply isn't shared by most people. It potentially
broadens the spectrum of Republicans who
might be able to come out and say 'I don't go
that far.'... If he gets so extreme that members
of his own party feel the need to disavow him,
that can only help us." ■
