Mitt Romney stumped for the “evangelical Christian vote in Pennsylvania on Saturday by promising a cheering crowd he would do “the opposite” of President Barack Obama and stand firm with Israel. Polls show that Pennsylvania is solidly behind the president, but Republicans see a change in the surveys that indicate they have a shot at taking the state in the general elections in November. The last time a Republican presidential candidate won Pennsylvania was in 1988, when George Bush was elected after Ronald Reagan’s two terms as president.
Romney’s Mormon faith is an obstacle to his sewing up the evangelical Christian vote, and his speech to the Faith and Freedom Coalition, an evangelical Christian political organization, made it clear to voters they must realize the urgency of supporting him. Faith and Freedom Coalition director Ralph Reed warned the audience that President Obama is waging what he called a “war against religion.”
