Governor Herbert on Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney

As a proclaimed member of the same religion practiced by the Republican candidate for president, Mitt Romney, Utah Governor Gary Herbert has had ample opportunity to answer questions about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints during this week's National GOP Convention.

Herbert was a councilman in Salt Lake City when Romney was there for the Olympics, and during his time in Tampa, the Governor has worked to persuade delegates to focus on Romney's ability to manage -- a message he says is more important than Romney's ability to socialize.
