Iowa anti-abortion leader jumps on Brownback bandwagon
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Sam Brownback, the Kansas Republican who established a presidential exploratory committee last month, enlisted the help of a key Iowa conservative Thursday.

Kim Lehman, the current president and executive director of Iowa Right to Life, has signed on to Brownback's upcoming Iowa leadership committee.

"For those who care about protecting the unborn and supporting the right to life, Senator Brownback is the clear choice," Lehman said in a statement. "While other candidates are in the process of defining and refining their position at the start of this campaign, Senator Brownback has been principled, consistent and unwavering in his support for the right to life."

Brownback has said he will make a formal decision on a presidential run in the coming months.
