BobJonesIII, the chancellor of Bob Jones University, a conservative Christian school in Greenville, South Carolina, has endorsed former Massachusetts governor MittRomney for the Republican nomination for president. “As a Christian I am completely opposed to the doctrines of Mormonism,” Jones told the Greenville News October 16. “But I’m not voting for a preacher. I’m voting for a president. It boils down to who can best represent conservative American beliefs, not religious beliefs.” Jones, whose school is in a state that is pivotal because of its early Republican primary in the 2008 elections, said he opposes presidential front-runners former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and Senator Hillary Clinton because both support abortion rights. “This is all about beating Hillary,” said the grandson of the school’s founder.
