Family Research Council Flirting with Romney?

I'm watching Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council on the Situation Room. First, he won't vote for Giuliani. What really interests me, though, is that he emphasizes that he doesn't want to snub the economic or foreign policy conservatives with who he supports. He specified that he doesn't want to advance a "pro-tax" candidate. Is that a hint that FRC won't get behind Huckabee? Also, when asked about Romney, he said that he is sure his conversion on the social issues is genuine and that he doesn't mind Romney being Mormon (even though he admitted that Romney is not a Christian). He said that a lot of social conservatives should feel comfortable with Romney and that he feels comfortable with him, personally.

There will be a straw poll later this weekend. I'll post the results as soon as they are public.
