Republican leaders are circulating a resolution listing 10 positions Republican candidates should support if they want party backing.
Candidates, the resolution says, need to demonstrate that they are faithful to "conservative principles and public policies and Republican solidarity in opposition to Obama's socialist agenda."
Conservative RNC member James Bopp Jr. began circulating the draft, which calls on the Republican National Committee to end funding and endorsements for any candidate who deviates from three or more of the positions.
"I think we have a very urgent task as Republicans and that is to reclaim our conservative bona fides and supporting liberal Republican party-splitters is very damaging to that task," Bopp said. He has not talked to Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele about the resolution.
