Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced State Senator Alberta Darling as Co-Chair of his Wisconsin campaign.
“It’s great to have the support of a distinguished leader like Alberta,” said Mitt Romney. “She has been a consistent fighter to cut spending, lower taxes, and empower job creators and small businesses. With Alberta’s help, I look forward to spreading my message of a ‘Simpler, Smaller, and Smarter’ federal government.”
“It’s a pleasure to stand with Alberta in support of Governor Romney,” said former State Senator Ted Kanavas, a Wisconsin Co-Chair. “It is clear that Wisconsin voters are looking for a conservative candidate who can beat President Obama and reverse his failed policies. Alberta and I will work tirelessly with Governor Romney to ensure that his conservative message is spread throughout the state.”
“President Obama’s policies have decimated the middle class,” said State Senator Alberta Darling. “Unemployment is on the rise; small businesses are being burdened by high taxes and overregulation; all while our children’s’ future is being mortgaged to China to pay for our staggering debt. We need a president who has signed both sides of a paycheck; one who knows how to create jobs and reduce the size of government. Mitt Romney is a conservative businessman who has a detailed plan to create jobs, grow the economy, and restore our country’s fiscal health. I am proud to support him and urge all those who want to turn this economy around to join me.”
