He wasn't there but Mitt Romney got some love over the weekend at a Washington, D.C., gathering of more than 2.000 evangelical Protestants representing a demographic that proved crucial to electing the last four Republican presidents.
"I never heard Rand Paul give a presentation and I was impressed with how humble he was — so honest in saying he struggled with things in life, not arrogant or assuming, very appealing," Mrs. Bengard said.
"I know I said a few months ago that I would never vote for a Mormon, but my husband and I and our friends are so far past that now," said Kim Bengard, whose San Clemente, Calif., home is three doors away from what was President Nixon's "Western White House." "I have come to understand that Mitt Romney supports my values. We're really pleased with him."
