Marriott Junior, a Mormon, spoke at a Wolfeboro, N.H., branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, where the Republican presidential nominee and his wife were attending services. Marriott thanked the couple for lifting the church "out of obscurity," adding that "there has never been as much positive attention...thanks to the wonderful campaign of Mitt Romney and his family."
