America Needs Mitt Romney's Leadership
By: Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH)
New Hampshire Union Leader
"Over the last few months, I have joined you in taking the opportunity to meet the candidates running for the Republican presidential nomination, to learn about their positions on the issues, to meet their families, and to examine their records. This is a critical election that will determine the future course of our country. When evaluating a candidate, we must take into account the full breadth of their experience, vision and values. What I have found is that Mitt Romney is the leader we need in Washington.
"Our country needs Romney's experience in Washington. Throughout his career, he has taken on extraordinary challenges and has succeeded." ...
"It is impossible to meet Romney and not come away with a clear understanding of his vision for the country. For him, it is very simple. It is about keeping America the strongest nation in the world with a strong economy, strong military and strong families.
"Romney's strategy for a stronger America embodies New Hampshire's values. We believe that our government must live within its means and that we should lower taxes to strengthen our economy with good jobs. We believe in protecting our homeland and our families. We believe that our leaders in Washington should stand for principle. We believe in leaders like Mitt Romney.
"I have been particularly impressed with his agenda to cut taxes and spending in Washington. More than any other candidate, he has laid out a conservative blueprint to cut taxes for all Americans and has proposed specific steps needed to end wasteful spending. Change in Washington begins with Congress returning to the principles of fiscal responsibility. I know that Romney will carry that mantle in Washington." ...
"Romney's experiences have taught him that to meet a new generation of challenges, we must call upon the strength of the American people, not increase the size of government. Romney will bring conservative change to Washington by leading Republicans with new ideas, new energy and strong leadership. New Hampshire needs Mitt Romney in Washington."
