(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) Evangelical political leaders are voicing their opposition to President-elect Trump picking Mitt Romney as his secretary of State, claiming it would "demoralize" millions of Trump supporters who ignored Romney's harsh and personal attacks on their presidential choice.
David Lane, who led a national effort to get evangelical voters to the polls and ministers to run for office, said Trump has only "one chance" to craft a cabinet and he should look beyond Romney, who has been forced to eat crow as he campaigns for the State position.
"President-elect Trump gets one chance to fill the cabinet with individuals who share his vision and values, and will be loyal team players. One chance. Appointing a self-motivated adversary to a top cabinet seat will demoralize the millions of grassroots, precinct-level conservative supporters who delivered Trump the presidency on November 8th," said David Lane, of the American Renewal Project.
