John King Calls Mitt Romney 'Governor Mormon'

Posted: Updated:

CNN Host John King had his own 'oops' moment on Saturday night while covering the Nevada caucus.

While breaking down the results of the GOP contest, he referred to Mitt Romney as "Governor Mormon."

Discussing each candidate's religion, King said, "Obviously, Governor Mormon is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints."

Romney dominated the Nevada caucus, partially thanks to an overwhelming amount of support from local Mormons. According to the AP, 25% of Saturday's voters was Mormon and 90% of Mormons voted for Romney. He also won among other Christian groups, like evangelicals and Catholics.
