Republican presidential contender Sam Brownback, campaigning Thursday in Iowa, said that, if he's elected, he'll nominate Supreme Court justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade. "We can get it done," Brownback said. "We're one justice away, and if we lose this we're going to be two or three judges away from overturning this thing that is wrong."
