Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty will meet with Iowa's largest anti-gay marriage group next month.

According to the Des Moines Register, Pawlenty has agreed to sit down with The Family Leader, a newly created umbrella group that includes the Iowa Family Policy Center.

“It looks like in February we are going to be hosting Governor Pawlenty in Iowa,” the group's president, Bob Vander Plaats, said.

The 50-year-old Pawlenty is considered a moderate Republican, but an earlier decision to appear on the radio program of the American Family Association's (AFA) Bryan Fischer raised eyebrows.

In that appearance, Pawlenty, a possible 2012 presidential candidate, said that as president he would work to reinstate “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the soon-to-be repealed law that bans gay and bisexual troops from serving openly.

The Family Leader is the state's most vociferous opponent of Iowa's gay marriage law. Vander Plaats worked to oust three of the seven Iowa Supreme Court justices who ruled favorably on the issue and is pressing lawmakers to impeach the four that remain. The group is also working with Republican lawmakers to approve legislation that would begin the process of placing a gay marriage ban in the Iowa Constitution.
