Paul seeks to attract Mormon voters in Nevada GOP contest
His libertarian, anti-Washington principles appeal
In recent days, Ron Paul has been trying to make inroads in Nevada among followers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, trying to dent the natural affinity Mormon voters have with Romney. The strategy may be born of necessity. In Nevada, a state where Paul is campaigning heavily, around one quarter of 2008 Republican caucusgoers were Mormon, according to AP exit polls. Paul is counting on a strong showing in Nevada and other caucus states to build up his slate of delegates.
