Bob Jones III Unplugged

SPARTANBURG -- Bob Jones III said he hasn't endorsed Mitt Romney as he did in the last presidential campaign partly because he doesn't think Christian voters will rule the Mormon candidate out this time.

"Number one, he hasn't asked for it,'' said Jones, chancellor of the fundamentalist Christian university named after his family. "I had a reason for doing it the first time. I don't have that same reason this time.''

In a wide-ranging interview Friday afternoon in his stately office replete with mounted game, a bear rug, dark wood furniture and stained glass windows, Jones recalled why he backed Romney in 2007.
