Evangelical for Mitt: A South Carolina power broker promotes the frontrunner

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (CNN) - You’ve probably never heard of her, but Cindy Costa’s tablemates at a Sunday prayer breakfast here hint at her influence.

Inside a hotel ballroom bulging with 400 socially conservative activists, Costa is seated with the headliners: White House hopeful Rick Perry and political operative Ralph Reed.

    When is someone in the Republican Party going to stand up and support the US Constitution, which strongly indicates that there should be a seperation of church and state? A government with a state sponsored religion is what the drove people to American in the first place, and what the revolutionaires fought to secede from?

  2. Truth and Nothing But the Truth

    For Costa, Romney is a brother in Christ and a devoted family man – and the one candidate with the intellect and organization to defeat President Obama. “If Romney gets the right Congress,” she tells many activists she meets, “you’re looking at another Ronald Reagan.”

    Now here's a woman with great intellect and vision... She knows what it takes to win and be a great President. Electing Romney and leaving useless Haryr Reid in charge of the Senate would cripple the country. Reid has already shown he's willing to just not pass anything that doesn't meet his leftist standards.

    Hey Rudy, I must have missed the Church of America U.S. government paid for temples... All I find are churches and temples of many religions in our cities and towns. Can you please post the address of a U.S. government church?

    The people in the audience look like they would like to have Mitt for lunch.
    This guy is not even likeable,nobody likes a liar. He comes across as insincere, not genuine, and robotic.
    Good luck with ALL that.
    Obama 2012.
