The signs, speeches  and videos at the Republican presidential convention are laser focused on the economy. But the GOP still must acknowledge a platform that includes some core social issue planks, including a ban on abortion with no exceptions. It also has to make room for the social conservatives represented by speakers like Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, who are key to the get-out-the-vote effort come November.

Former Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery says she thinks the party can stay focused, despite some differences.

“There are many of us who are Republicans who don’t always agree with the platform. But we agree with the fundamental structure of this party, which is limited government, the ability to win the American Dream, social mobility, the individual responsibility. And that’s the structure we hang all the ornaments on.”
