The Daily Caller reports that Governor Mitt Romney is quickly consolidating the Republican base to support him in November. His speech this weekend at Liberty University illustrates provides an opportunity for Romney to get closer to a segment of the Right which may instinctively be repelled by the candidate’s Mormon affiliation.
Liberty University is the perfect venue for Governor Romney to make his case, writes the Daily Caller. With more than 50,000 students, it’s America’s largest Evangelical school. Founded by Jerry Falwell, it’s affiliated with the largest Evangelical denomination in America, the 16 million-member Southern Baptist Convention.
