Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced the endorsement of former Missouri Senator and Ambassador John Danforth. Senator Danforth joins Senator Roy Blunt and former Senator Jim Talent in endorsing Mitt Romney.
“It is an honor to have Senator Danforth’s support,” said Mitt Romney. “For his entire life, Senator Danforth has served Missouri and his country with distinction. His values and commitment to American ideals are what all public servants should aspire to replicate.”
Announcing his support, Senator Danforth said, “This election is one of, if not the, most important of my lifetime. Our country faces the possibility of losing our place in the world if our economy fails to restart. Mitt Romney has taken on significant challenges at every moment in his life. Whether it was turning around struggling companies, rescuing the Olympics, or restoring fiscal health in his state as governor, he has proven that he has both the skill and leadership ability to ensure that the United States remains the strongest and most respected nation in the world. I am honored to join Senators Roy Blunt and Jim Talent in endorsing Mitt Romney. With their help and the hard work of the many Missourians supporting Mitt Romney, we will defeat President Obama in November and set a new course for the country.”
