    Mormon Democrats Make the Case for Obama


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     OdysseyNews is a multi-faith news organization covering the conventions. A crew filmed this package at the LDS Democrats National Convention Meeting on Tuesday.

    Mormon Democrats are a rarity in Utah. They represent just 7 percent of Mormons in the state, but came out full force Tuesday evening at an LDS Democrats event held in Charlotte, N.C. in and around the Democratic National Convention. LDS Democrats, many of whom were formerly Republican, say the Democratic party now best represents their core values, including caring for the most vulnerable in society. They are not monolithic in their beliefs however, as LDS Democrats range from feminists to anti-abortion.
