Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced the support of New Hampshire State Senator Jim Rausch (R-Derry). Rausch is the third member of the New Hampshire State Senate to endorse Mitt Romney, joining Senators Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) and Jack Barnes (R-Raymond).
“Jim Rausch has been a tireless advocate for the traditional New Hampshire principles of lower taxes, limited government and less spending,” said Mitt Romney. “I am grateful for Jim’s endorsement, and look forward to working with him to build support for my pro-growth agenda across the Granite State.”
Announcing his support, Senator Rausch said, “Mitt Romney is the most qualified candidate running for President and the only Republican who can beat Barack Obama in 2012. As a successful businessman and a fiscally conservative governor, Mitt has the experience needed to turn around our economy, return fiscal sanity to Washington and create jobs. I am proud to support his candidacy and look forward to working to ensure that Mitt Romney is elected as our next President.”
Senator Rausch will introduce Mitt Romney at his town hall meeting today in Derry.
