Bachmann gets Schlafly

The Des Moines Register on a nice endorsement from the influential founder of the socially-conservatives Eagle Forum.

Social conservative Phyllis Schlafly has endorsed Michele Bachmann for president and is urging Iowans to caucus for her, Bachmann’s campaign told The Des Moines Register tonight.

In a written statement, Schlafly says: “Most important, Michele has the courage to be a leader among her peers. She is a real champion in speaking up for values we care about. Michele is a woman of faith and the mother of a beautiful family. She has a 100 percent pro-life record and is a strong supporter of traditional marriage.

This, along with Bachmann's swiped homeschooler list, provides her a little boost with social conservatives.
