Romney: Voting for Huckabee Helps McCain

Saturday, 02 Feb 2008 10:49 AM

Mitt Romney warned evangelicals Friday that if they vote for Mike Huckabee, the Republican presidential nominee will be "liberal" John McCain.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Romney told a Missouri radio station that evangelicals can "vote for Mike Huckabee and feel good about their vote. But they're basically saying, 'We're going to give the conservative vote -- we're going to divide it in half, give some to Mike Huckabee, give some to Mitt Romney.' "

Speaking from to KYTV in Springfield, Mo., Romney called McCain "too liberal" on immigration, taxes, campaign finance restrictions and global warming. He also said McCain's energy plan would increase gas prices by 50 cents a gallon.

"It basically flows from the sort of blame-America-first-for-global-warming philosophy that some people have," Romney said.
