Sam Brownback To Drop Out
Far right Republican, Sam Brownback, who largely defined his campaign for president as an intolerant attack on the Mormon faith of his rival, Mitt Romney, and a right wing cultural crusade against gay rights, pornography and any other form of cultural liberalism is likely to soon drop out of the Republican race for president.
Brownback was only a recent convert to the Catholic faith, however his campaign has combined the Catholic opposition to abortion with his own strange far right views supporting guns and a tough line on the immigration issue.
Brownback would have presented perhaps the most serious threat to freedom of speech and civil liberties of any Republican if elected president. His dropping out of the race is great news for all progressives.
