Comment: revenge

(See in situ)


Every cycle, they have to field a candidate who rarely (if ever) wins, but can eventually deliver the evangelicals to the nominee.

They won't vote for a Mormon for President, and unless there's some kind of payoff, they won't tell their people to support him either. The 'revenge' part of it is because they mounted an effort for Huckabee to oppose Mitt in 2008, and got behind Santorum this time in much the same way.
