Log Cabin endorses Romney; Stonewall Democrats call nod ‘shameful’

Mitt Romney endorsement

With just two weeks to go before the Nov. 6 general election, gay GOP group Log Cabin Republicans officially endorsed Mitt Romney to be the next president of the United States.

The endorsement was the topic of much speculation in recent weeks, as Romney, and nearly all of the other major Republican contenders during the primary season, signed a pledge to push toward a federal marriage amendment. Such a pledge caused the Log Cabin Republicans to withhold an endorsement of former president George W. Bush in the 2004 general election.

But the pledge was largely a non-issue for Log Cabin in 2012.
