Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced the support of New Hampshire community leader and longtime Republican activist Robb Thomson.

“For decades, Robb Thomson has been a leader in the fight to reduce spending, cut taxes and promote economic growth in New Hampshire,” said Mitt Romney. “I am honored to have his support and look forward to working with Robb as I continue to campaign vigorously across the Granite State.”
“Governor Romney understands, as my father did, that low taxes are the result of low spending. He is the best candidate to rein in reckless government spending, get our exploding deficits under control and restore fiscal sanity to Washington,” said Thomson. “In 2012, Republicans need to nominate a fiscally responsible leader who can create jobs, turn around our economy and defeat Barack Obama. That leader is Mitt Romney.”
