With Election Day finally having come and gone, God-o-Meter is closing up shop till 2012–or at least 2010. Till then, get your faith and politics fix over at Beliefnet editor-in-chief Steve Waldman’s blog.
Mitt Romney today announced the endorsement of Robert Wolgemuth, an evangelical best-selling author and former chairman of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. God-o-Meter wonders how many other evangelical endorsements the Romney camp has in its pocket to announce in the week leading up to the Iowa caucuses–and whether they’ll actually sway any evangelical voters. Wolgemuth’s statement:
“Governor Romney has demonstrated that he is the one candidate in both parties who can represent the three pillars of the Reagan coalition – a strong military, a strong economy and stronger families. Most importantly, he has laid out a vision for strengthening American families through championing a Federal Marriage Amendment and defending the sanctity of human life. Governor Romney has the experience, vision and personal values to lead our county as we face ongoing and new domestic and global challenges, and I am proud to support his candidacy.”
