Gay conservative group GOProud has one mission between now and November, 2012 -- to defeat Barack Obama.
"Barack Obama's tenure in the White House has been an unmitigated disaster for all Americans, including gay and lesbian Americans," GOProud president Jimmy LaSalvia said in a statement. "Defeating Barack Obama and putting a conservative in the White House should be the number one goal of every single person in the conservative movement."
The group is looking ahead toward the Iowa Straw Poll in August as the kickoff for the effort. The Ames Straw Poll will begin on August 11th with a Republican Presidential debate and conclude on August 13th with the actual straw poll itself.
"This Republican presidential field is shaping up to be an incredibly strong one," La Salvia said. We look forward to hearing each of the candidates make his or her case about why they would be the best nominee to beat Barack Obama."
