While addressing the CPAC crowd today, GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney made sure to bump up his conservative credentials, telling his audience, for instance, that he would fight for a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as a relationship between a woman and a man and reminding them that he has previously vetoed a bill “that would have opened the door to cloning and embryo farming.”
He also spoke about the challenges he’d faced as the Republican governor of a blue state, Massachusetts.
“My state was the leading indicator of what liberals would be trying to do across the country,” he said, “and they’re trying to do right now. And I fought against long odds in a deep blue state. But I was a severely conservative Republican governor.”
“I understand the battles we as conservatives must fight because I have been on the front lines, he continued, “and expect to be on those front lines again.”
