IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Gubernatorial candidate Rex Rammell says he will hold a series of special meetings with men who are active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Standard Journal reports that Rammell says the meetings aren't intended to be secret but he doesn't want people who "don't believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet" to attend.
Rammell says the meeting will include discussion of LDS Church founder Joseph Smith's "prophecy that the Constitution will be hanging by a thread and that the Latter-day Saint elders will step forward and save it."
Rammell, a Mormon, is running in Idaho's GOP primary election next May against incumbent C.L. "Butch" Otter and Ada County Commissioner Sharon Ullman.
The LDS Church had no comment on Rammell's meetings and noted its political neutrality policy.
