Romney’s Mormonism

ROMNEY’S MORMONISM….Here’s a question for any old-timers who might be reading this blog: was George Romney’s Mormon faith an issue for him when he ran for president in 1968? I know that Romney self-destructed with his “brainwashing” comment so early in the campaign that nothing else really mattered, but I’m just curious about whether this was something that was even an issue at the time. Anyone know?
