Rove speaks at Davis County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner | News
Former Presidential advisor Karl Rove spoke at the Davis County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner Thursday.
Among other things, Rove discussed the possible presidential bids of former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr. and Mitt Romney, both members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Rove said that a candidate's religion should play no role in the political debate, despite concerns that Huntsman, Jr. and Romney would be at a disadvantage because of their faith.
"We enshrine in our Bill of Rights the free expression of religion," said Rove. "You can believe whatever you want to believe and you're just as good an American as anybody else. This very focused attention to one man--to the tenets of one man's church--makes me uncomfortable."
Rove also spoke on the economy, spending and deficits and health care reform.
