Doing my mid-morning blog read and caught this in presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s speech this morning to the “annual NAACP convention in Houston”:
With 90 percent of African-Americans voting for Democrats, some of you may wonder why a Republican would bother to campaign in the African American community, and to address the NAACP. Of course, one reason is that I hope to represent all Americans, of every race, creed or sexual orientation, from the poorest to the richest and everyone in between.
Emphasis added. Interesting that he chose to add in “sexual orientation.” Good sign that he chose to include that expression.
