Politico: Social conservatives warn Republicans not to abandon social issues, by Abby Phillip:
of the religious right are warning Republicans not to abandon social
issues in a document that is expected to be an outline of the party’s
governing agenda if it regains control of Congress.
Some have compared the document, being drafted by the GOP’s
congressional leadership, to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s
groundbreaking 1994 “Contract With America.” But religious
conservatives are worried that their bread-and-butter social issues —
opposition to abortion and gay marriage, and support for religious
liberty — will be left behind on the Republicans’ path to power, an
effort to draw support from social moderates.
