Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced his Young Americans for Romney Leadership Team. The group will be led by National Chairman Craig Romney. This team will work with prominent young leaders from across the country to help spread the message about why Mitt Romney is the best choice for America’s future.
“I am so heartened that young people from around the country are working with me to restore America’s promise,” said Mitt Romney. “Whether it is the fact that half of our recent college graduates are struggling to find good jobs or that our spiraling debt is an enormous burden on our next generation, President Obama has clearly failed young people. Our next generation needs a president who will look out for them and their futures. I will work every day to ensure that our young people will have an even brighter future than their parents had.”
National Chairman Craig Romney said, “This committee will provide important outreach to young Americans who are interested in restoring economic security to our country. My father has a strong track record of leadership, whether it was turning around companies, the Olympics, or the state of Massachusetts. America needs that type of leadership in the Oval Office. I am looking forward to working with young Americans from across the country to spread this message. Our country is down, but we are certainly not out. I believe that my dad is the man to provide opportunity and leadership to all Americans—especially our next generation.”
Honorary National Co-Chairman Aaron Schock made the following statement on the formation of the Young American’s for Romney Leadership Team, “Every day that passes, our next generation is increasingly burdened with a crushing debt. We need to make sure that we work to pay down our debt and work toward a balanced budget. Mitt Romney has proposed a bold plan that will scale back the size of government, so that young people aren’t paying for our reckless spending. I am proud to stand with him and to help engage young people in the most important election of their lives.”
New Hampshire State Representative Marilinda Garcia said, “It has long been an American tradition that each generation leaves our country in a better place than they inherited it. Today, with President Obama’s failed policies, I fear that may not be the case. Mitt Romney believes that America’s brightest days are ahead – but to get there, we need to reverse the failed policies of the past. I stand with Mitt and will work tirelessly to make sure our young people understand his plan to get America working again.”
“Mitt Romney has spent his career in business,” said National Advisory Board Member Jeb Bush, Jr. “He knows what it takes to grow jobs and empower small businesses. President Obama has been hostile to job creators and that has prevented our economy from recovering faster. Mitt Romney has proposed a bold agenda for his first one hundred days that will reinvigorate job growth and make America believe in itself once again.”

WASHINGTON, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former Presidential Candidate Gary Bauer congratulated Governor Scott Walker for his win in Wisconsin's recall election, calling it "another sign that taxpayers will award office holders ready to do the hard work of reigning in out-of-control government spending."

Bauer, the chairman of the Campaign for Working Families,  made the following statement:

"I congratulate Governor Scott Walker for his hard-fought victory tonight, and most especially for having the courage of his convictions to fight the good fight. But the victory in Wisconsin is not Scott Walker's alone.  It is a victory for the hard-working taxpayers of Wisconsin, who foot the bill year after year.  It is a victory for common sense over powerful special interests.  It is a victory that taxpayers in every state can celebrate.  It is a victory, yes, even for some union members.

"Since Gov. Walker's reforms were enacted, tens of thousands of state employees have opted to keep more of the money they earn rather than let the public employees union siphon off their hard-earned dollars.  In other words, once given the choice, more than half of the public employees union's members decided that they didn't need the union.  These reforms will pay real dividends for the taxpayers of Wisconsin.  They are the real winners tonight.

"The recall election is a sign of good things to come.  The power of the Big Labor bosses has finally been checked, not just in Wisconsin, but also in scores of other states across the country.  More governors, legislators and taxpayers will be inspired to stand up against the liberal labor unions and do what is truly in the best interests of their communities.  Wisconsin's 10 Electoral College votes are now in play, and the anti-tax, small government movement that swept the country in 2010 is about to sweep Barack Obama out of office in 154 days!"
