Mormon Quest For The Presidency: From Joseph Smith To Mitt Romney And Jon Huntsman

This session is a roundtable discussion focusing on two presidential candidates, Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman, each seeking the 2012 Republican nomination for president. Special emphasis will be given to the strengths versus the weaknesses of each, as well as assessing the chances for success of each. A brief overview will be provided of the nine candidates with Mormon ties (beginning with Joseph Smith in 1844) who preceded Romney and Huntsman in seeking the presidency. The basis for this discussion is the expanded and updated volume The Mormon Quest for the Presidency by Newell G.Bringhurst and Craig l. Foster
