Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced the support of additional South Carolina leaders.
“I’m very proud to earn the support of even more conservative leaders here in the Palmetto state,” said Mitt Romney. “They realize that we need to replace the President with someone who knows how to grow the economy. I look forward to working with them to create jobs for South Carolinians and people all across the country.”
Announcing his support, O.L. Thompson, CEO of O.L. Thompson Construction Company, said, “I’m happy to endorse Mitt Romney. We need a president who not only shares our conservative principles, but also is committed to putting them into action. Mitt Romney has shown he has the temperament and judgment to lead effectively. Whether it was his time in business, saving the Winter Olympics, or steering Massachusetts out of a massive budget deficit, he has shown he has what it takes to get our nation back on track. I call on all conservatives who want to defeat President Obama and replace him with a proven leader to join me in supporting Mitt Romney.”
