Reid Plays Religion Card Vs. Romney – Their Own
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lashed out at Mitt Romney’s faith during a conference call with reporters, saying he is “not the face of Mormonism” and suggesting he has tarnished the religion.
Reid, a Democrat and the highest-ranking Mormon in U.S. elected office, also says he agrees with fellow Mormons who say Romney has discredited the Latter Days Saint faith, using the word “sullied.”
The Nevada senator made the comments during a call Friday, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.
“He’s coming to a state where there are a lot of members of the LDS Church,” Reid also said ahead of Romney’s arrival Friday. “They understand that he is not the face of Mormonism.”
The Romney campaign declined Tuesday to comment.
