Mormons in Politics

 

Politico reports that Mitt Romney met with donors and senior campaign leaders in Washington this past Friday morning, and said he would help out GOP candidates for governor in 2013, as well as in the upcoming midterm elections and the 2016 presidential race.  Romney also made clear his ambition for elected office has ended.

 “We lost, but I’m not going away,” Romney reportedly told the crowd.   “I will continue to help.”

Individuals in the group thanked Romney for running and more than one Mormon backer praised Romney for showing their faith in another light.

The Romney candidacy was a high water mark for Mormons in American politics.  What does his defeat say about their political future?

KFAI’s Jemma Brown traveled to Salt Lake City to find out.
