What to expect
He may be the only Republican who can deny John McCain the nomination, and he may be the only Republican who can stop Hillary Clinton. He’s an incredibly successful businessman and a fiscal and social conservative who managed to win the governorship in one of the staunchest Democratic states in America. But Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is also a devout Mormon—so what does that mean for the election of 2008?
In the first book on this intriguing candidate, Hugh Hewitt sets out to explain Romney, his faith, and the importance of that debate. Mixing exclusive interviews with the governor and candid conversations with some of the country’s leading Christian pastors and shrewdest political observers, this is a riveting look inside the most wide-open battle for the presidency since 1948.
