WASHINGTON, DC - The chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus doubts that Mitt Romney's capture of the Republican presidential nomination will win him many black votes.
Missouri Democrat Emanuel Cleaver, who's a minister as well as a congressman, is hosting a summit with black church leaders this week in Washington.
He says the focus will be on voting rights, but there also will be a discussion of gay marriage, which Cleaver says most blacks oppose.
Cleaver concedes that could cost President Barack Obama support in November, but he believes most blacks still take "pride" in the president and want him to be re-elected, and consider Mitt Romney to be too conservative.
