Tea Party Caucus, Tea Party Leaders, ‘We Need Unity!’
(Washington, D.C.) Former presidential frontrunner Herman Cain
told more than 100 members of the Congressional Tea Party Caucus and
leaders of the nation’s most influential TEA party groups that he is
officially endorsing Mitt Romney for President.
Cain made the announcement in Washington D.C. after a meeting called by
Tea Party Caucus leader Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota) to discuss
the American economy and the American Dream. The meeting was touted as
“The More Perfect Union Panel”.
“One way to achieve this goal of a more perfect union is by getting
Barack Obama out of the White House,” Cain said. “Throwing our support
and energy behind Mitt Romney is a big step in accomplishing this
Cain added that he already supported Romney prior to making the
endorsement official. “I’ve met with him privately and now I’m telling
everyone publicly, if Mitt Romney wasn’t your favorite candidate for
the Republican nomination, Get Over It! We need unity to take back the
White House and the Senate, and keep control of the House of
Representatives. Since the beginning of the year, I have been touring
the country speaking to all kinds of groups. And this message is
resonating not just among Tea Party groups and political candidates,
but people of faith, disgruntled Democrats and Republicans alike – and
especially college students.”
At a meeting behind closed doors in late April, Cain encouraged Romney
to be strong in his embrace of fundamental principles espoused by Tea
Party groups and other conservative voices. Cain said then that not
everyone in the Republican camp will agree on everything, but Gov.
Romney gets the big things right - especially recognizing that federal
policies are the biggest impediment to American prosperity.
“This is why I officially endorse Gov. Romney. I now call on the
millions of Americans who want to end disastrous government policies
that compromise our freedom and prosperity to do the same and help Gov.
Romney win in November.”
Also attending today’s meeting were leaders of TheTeaParty.net, Tea
Party Nation and Tea Party Patriots, groups that have been instrumental
in leading the charge to mobilize Americans to take back power that
rightfully belongs to the people, not government.
