Editor's note — Convention Watch shows you the 2012 political conventions through the eyes of Associated Press journalists.
Former pastor and one-time presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee says he wants to clear the air about whether "guys like me — an evangelical — would only support a fellow evangelical."
"Of the four people on the two tickets, the only self-professed evangelical is Barack Obama," Huckabee told the GOP convention. "And he supports changing the definition of marriage; believes that human life is disposable and expendable at any time in the womb, even beyond the womb; and tells people of faith that they must bow their knees to the god of government and violate their faith and conscience in order to comply with what he calls health care."
Referring to the Republican nominee's Mormon faith, former Arkansas Gov. Huckabee said: "I care far less as to where Mitt Romney takes his family to church than I do about where he takes this country."
