The Mormon Angle In Russell Pearce Recall In Arizona ( Immigration)

Get Religion has a pretty good piece relating to the rather nationally known head of the Arizona State Senate being recalled last night. See Religion angles in recall elections

This Mormon dynamic and the real tension on immigration between Church Leadership / Laity and indeed the split between the laity itself is a fascinating undercovered part of Mormons in the public square. Indeed we have seen this dynamic play out several times in elections that have got some national notice. The GOP House Rep Chris Cannon race in Utah a few years back is just one big example.

If Romney is the nominee of the GOP, I wonder how that will play out between him and the Church.
