MITT ROMNEY ANNOUNCES
SUPPORT OF THREE TEXAS MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
– Mitt Romney today
announced the support of Texas Congresswoman Kay Granger and
Congressmen Mike Conaway and Pete Olson.
“It is my sincere privilege to announce the support of these leaders
from the great state of Texas,” said Mitt Romney. “Each of them
has long stood for our conservative principles both at home and in
Washington, D.C. We have a long road ahead, but with their help, I
am confident that we can spread our pro-growth message to voters across
the country and defeat President Obama in November.”
Announcing her support, Congresswoman Granger said, “It is time we had
a conservative leader who will restore our country’s standing in the
world. President Obama’s reckless foreign policy has not only
failed, it has emboldened our enemies. Mitt Romney is committed to
making the 21st Century an American Century. I am proud to stand with
“It is my privilege to help Mitt Romney secure the Republican
nomination and defeat Barack Obama this November,” said Congressman
Mike Conaway. “With federal spending out of control, Americans need a
leader that understands how to balance a budget. The strength of
our economy depends on balancing the federal budget, and there is no
candidate more capable of doing that than Mitt Romney. I look forward
to a smaller, simpler, and smarter government under his leadership.”
Announcing his support, Congressman Pete Olson said, “Mitt Romney is
the only candidate that understands the magnitude of President Obama’s
failure with respect to both the economy and foreign policy. In
order to ensure a strong and safe future for our children and
grandchildren, we must elect a man with Governor Romney’s knowledge,
experience, and ability to lead. I am honored to offer him my support.”
