From Brody File Executive Producer Dana Ritter on site at Liberty University:
GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney gave what could be considered the biggest speech of his political career Saturday at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. Liberty University is the biggest evangelical Christian university in the world and the crowd was 34,000 people.
After his big speech, Romney sat down with Jennifer Wishon, White House Correspondent for CBN News. David Brody was planning to do the interview but a last second family emergency made that impossible.
She asked him about how he is going to court evangelical voters.

Jennifer Wishon: Governor, we are at the world’s largest evangelical Christian university. How do you plan to actively court evangelical voters and also energize them to get out the vote? Or do you think that you don’t necessarily have to do anything special to make that happen?
Mitt Romney: I think I have to make a real effort to get every voter in this country. Those people who are inclined to my views of the issues of the day, whether they are economic issues, foreign policy issues, social issues, I need to make sure they understand what my views are. Encourage them to get involved in the process, because this president is taking the country in a very different direction than most people would like to see it go. And I need them to understand how we can get it back on track, and how if we work together, we can do that.
