In announcing his support, Dr. Wolfram said, "In Governor Romney, the Republican Party has a candidate with vision, a firm grasp of the workings of the market economy, and a record of accomplishment, both in the private and public sector. His record as Governor of Massachusetts and his position on taxes clearly demonstrate why he deserves the support of all who are concerned about the economic well-being of the country."
