Minnery said gay SCOTUS a 'non-starter'; So now he'll help GOP find a POTUS, natch

6A00D8341C503453Ef0120A6Ac79C8970CDuring Elena Kagan's nomination and confirmation process, Focus on the Family's Tom Minnery put this on the record:

Tom Minnery, executive director of CitizenLink, is on the committee, which will decide what role the RNC will play in candidate debates leading up to the 2012 primary elections.
