Iowa: The National Organization for Marriage Attacks Ron Paul on Marriage Equality Position
The National Organization for Marriage, a leading social conservative group that is opposed to giving same-sex couples the right to marry, is striking out at Representative Ron Paul with a new television advertisement, a move intended to blunt the Texas congressman's rise in the polls a few days before the Iowa caucuses.
The group is just one of the many conservative political groups that are flooding the airwaves with commercials, adding a new element to the still unsettled race.
In recent days, groups working on behalf of former Senator Rick Santorum, former Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Gov. Mitt Romney have bought commercial slots on Iowa's broadcast stations for the first time.
