Christian Conservatives are a key voting block for the GOP, but many of the Republican candidates have personal profiles or past policy positions that raise red flags for the religious right.

Pastor Mike Rose of First Federated Church in Des Moines, Iowa, says he and many people he has spoken with have yet to find a candidate they can support among the Republican presidential contenders.

His church is one of the larger nondenominational evangelical churches in the area.

Rose talks with Michele Norris.
