NEBRASKA SENATOR MIKE JOHANNS ENDORSES MITT
– Mitt Romney today
announced the endorsement of Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns.
“Senator Johanns has been a tireless servant for Nebraska and our
country,” said Mitt Romney. “In my campaign, I am fighting to grow our
economy, lower spending, and reform how Washington works. Senator
Johanns has been on the frontline of these fights both in Nebraska and
in the Senate. With his help, we can put our country on a prosperous
path once again.”
Announcing his support,
Senator Johanns said, “The only way we are going to reverse the
failures of the last three years is if we have a president who
understands the economy. Mitt Romney applied the principles he learned
in the private sector to the challenges he faced leading the Olympics
and as Governor. These same conservative principles can be used to fix
our broken government.”
