From all I have heard, Mitt Romney, the current governor of Massachusetts, appears to be the ideal Republican contender for President. Some say he will never will the evangelical vote, however, because of his LDS (Mormon) faith. I think that is shortchanging the depth of the evangelical worldview and its relation to politics. At least one evangelical thinker at Biola University, Dr. John Mark Reynolds, thinks Romney is the best candidate and offers persuasive arguments that evagelicals ought to vote for him. Faith and politics surely relate, but they are ultimately two separate spheres – or have at least been treated so in American politics.
