The Hill is reporting that the upcoming Republican National Convention will prominently feature the party's opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage.
Republican National Committee (RNC) Communications Director Sean Spicer reportedly said that while the economy will be the signature issue...
...social issues, such as abortion and marriage, will be "front and foremost" in Tampa.
"There's a lot of folks that have a good constituency in the Republican party that believe that we are a party of traditional marriage, that we are a pro-life party," he said. "Those are issues that we believe in and we stand on as a party."
When pressed on whether there was concern that social issues might take away from Romney's economic message, Spicer said, "no."
And who can be surprised with an announced line-up of speakers like Rick Santorum, Paul Ryan's stance against abortion (even in cases of rape) and opposition to marriage equality, as well as Mitt Romney's regression from supporting a woman's right to choose and his double talk on gay civil rights.
The Republican National Convention will be held in Tampa, Florida, August 27-30.
