Republican presidential hopeful U.S. Rep. Ron Paul has received the endorsement of a second Iowa House freshman.
Rep. Kim Pearson, R- Pleasant Hill, said June 7 she’s backing the Texas congressman for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination.
Pearson, a retired attorney and home educator, called Paul “principled and courageous positions in defense of the Constitution.”
“His understanding of the problems America faces and his limited-government solutions make him the statesman we need to lead America out of our moral and financial crisis,” said Pearson, who has actively promoting rewriting Iowa law to restrict abortions. “He is the only presidential candidate with the experience, integrity and tenacity to do what needs to be done in Washington.”
Paul also has been endorsed by Rep. Glenn Massie, R-Indianola, who like Pearson advocates for abortion restrictions and the impeachment of four Iowa Supreme Court justices who participated in a unanimous decision to strike down a state law on same-sex marriage. The other three were removed by voters last fall.
