Click around on the original site and you'll see that he's clearly the only candidate who's raking in significant funds from Utah and it looks like an important source of money for him. Meanwhile, though, he's also just nabbed an endorsement from a key official at Bob Jones University and if a Mormon's good enough for BJU then why shouldn't he be good enough for the rest of the evangelical community?
