Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) fired back at former White House strategist Steve Bannon on Wednesday for launching an attack against Mitt Romney that included accusing the former presidential candidate of invoking his Mormon faith to avoid military service.

“Steve Bannon’s attacks on Governor Romney and his service are disappointing and unjustified,” Hatch said in a statement Wednesday.

“Mitt is a close personal friend, an honest leader, a great American, and someone who has sought every opportunity possible to serve our country,” he continued.

“I also resent anyone attacking any persons religious views, but particularly our own Christian LDS faith and the selfless service of missionary work.”
