The Hill reports that while speaking at the Values Voters Summit Friday, Mitt Romney said he understands why some folks say they won’t vote for a Mormon. That’s because they’ve been listening to Mormon Democrat Senator Harry Reid.
It is true that Harry Reid gives Mormons a bad name.
Romney, whose Mormon faith was once anathema to evangelicals and other Christians, appears to be gaining support among religious conservatives, as indicated by his reception Friday.
