Phyllis Schlafly: Romney Is Conservative

Famed conservative Phyllis Schlafly says likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is conservative enough for her.

“Yes, he’s a conservative,” Schlafly said during an interview with Mallory Factor. “He’s going to have to uphold conservative views if he’s going to be elected.”

Schlafly’s endorsement is indicative of a recent trend of conservatives beginning to coalesce around Romney, who has all but clinched his party’s nomination. Earlier this week, Texas Governor Rick Perry announced that he, too, will support Romney, the candidate he once clashed with during the earlier stages of the primary race.

During her conversation with Factor, Schlafly touched on a range of other issues, including welfare, marriage and President Obama, whom she described as being beholden to feminists.
