Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today welcomed the support of Michigan elected officials, including his Statewide Chairman, Attorney General Bill Schuette.

“I am happy to have earned the support of so many officials in Michigan,” said Mitt Romney. “Michigan needs jobs, and President Obama’s policies have failed to deliver them. These officials will help me during my campaign to promote job creation and improve the Michigan economy.”

“America needs a new President and Michigan, more than any other state, needs jobs, jobs, jobs,” Attorney General Bill Schuette said. “Mitt Romney is a bold leader with solid conservative credentials who can get our state and our country back on the right track. Mitt Romney knows that in order to revive our economy and restore the American Dream, we need lower taxes and more jobs; less spending and more paychecks; limited government and more freedom.”
