Mary Richards, KSL NewsradioEverywhere presidential candidate Mitt Romney goes, he's asked about his religion. Now, he's thinking about addressing the issue once and for all.

It would be a move similar to one made by John F. Kennedy, addressing religion and what it means for his political life.

This week Romney told WINK Newsradio in Florida he still doesn't believe his LDS religion will affect his presidential chances.

"You know I'm sure it will be an issue for some folks, and I appreciate that. But I think for the great majority of Americans, they'll find lots of other reasons to like me or not like me," he said.

Romney says he doesn't have the whole religion and politics speech written yet because he hasn't fully made up his mind to give it, but the speech is more likely than not.
