(Washington) The conservative base of the Republican Party is urging President Bush to stop campaigning on Iraq and concentrate on stopping gay marriage if he wants to win in November.

Bush met today with James Dobson, head of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family in Colorado. Dobson is a leading supporter of the a proposed constitutional amendment to bar legal recognition of same-sex marriages.

Dobson reportedly told Bush that conservatives are divided about the US role in Iraq, but united in fighting same-sex marriage.

His position echoes that of another leading conservative, Paul M. Weyrich.
