RNC Bows to Social Conservatives

The RNC "passed resolutions reaffirming its commitment to defining marriage as between a man and a woman, and calling on the Supreme Court to 'uphold the sanctity of marriage' as it weighs rulings on two landmark cases involving gay marriage," the Washington Post reports.

"The moves come days after social conservatives sent a letter to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, threatening to decamp if the party did not reaffirm its commitment to their issues. It's important to note that resolutions have to be submitted ten days in advance, meaning they have been on tap at the committee even before the letter was sent."
