Religion Not a Factor in Presidential Race

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) _ Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani says he agrees with rival Mitt Romney's assertions about religion and the presidency.

He declared that "there is no religious test for office, there should be no religious test for office.''

The former New York mayor was reacting to a speech by Romney in
Texas earlier in the day in which he decried having to continuously explain and justify his Mormon faith. Romney says as president he would serve no one religion, no one group and no one cause.

In his speech in College Station, Texas, Romney says repeated calls for him to justify his religious beliefs go against the wishes of the nation's founders.
