Romney, Giuliani Woo Religious Right
Posted on Oct 20, 2007
One by one, the Republican presidential contenders are going a’courtin’, stating their positions on gay marriage, abortion, religion and other high-priority issues of a crucial conservative constituency: the religious right. On Friday, Mitt Romney made his case to the Values Voters Summit, gingerly handling the matter of his Mormon faith, while Giuliani pitched woo on Saturday.
Romney talked about what he sees as the importance of two-parent homes, the threat of gay marriage and his anti-abortion rights stance.
“Now, I don’t have to tell the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family that the American family is under stress, under attack,” Romney said.
The former governor also addressed his change of heart on the abortion issue, something that has faded as an issue for Romney’s presidential campaign since he first got in the race.
