NOM finally addresses the failure of Ted Cruz's campaign

National Organization for Marriage
When Brian S. Brown, president of National Organization for Marriage, endorsed Ted Cruz I wrote that Cruz's campaign was doomed. Mr. Brown, you see, is afflicted with Reverse Midas Touch. In what is called a “NOM Newsletter Update” Brown finally gets around to addressing the failure of the Cruz campaign.
As you know, NOM endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz in the race for the presidency because Cruz is a proven champion for marriage and the rights of Americans to act in concert with a belief of marriage as the union of one man as and one woman. Cruz signed our Presidential Marriage Pledge, is the author of an amendment to restore the right of states to define marriage as one man/one woman, and is a co-sponsor of the First Amendment Defense Act.

Now that Donald J. Trump has become the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party, we will take our time to assess his candidacy. Trump says he supports traditional marriage but has said the illegitimate US Supreme Court ruling imposing gay marriage on the nation "settles the issue." This is very troubling.

We hope to meet with his campaign to better understand his views before we make any decision on what, if anything to do in the presidential race. In the meantime, we will focus our attention on critical US Senate and House races, and on state elections where we expect marriage to be a critical factor, such as the race for governor in North Carolina.
I doubt that Trump's campaign gives a rat's ass. More importantly the idea that marriage is a critical factor in any campaign is absurd. The issue is settled. NOM is done.
