(KSL News) Last night the Republican presidential candidates squared off for their second debate.

And, as has happened in the past, Mitt Romney had to defend his membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

"I also believe there are some pundits out there that are hoping I'll distance myself from my church, so that it will help me politically. That's not going to happen," he said.

Romney got a solid round of applause after making that statement.
