He joins State Senators Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro), Jack Barnes (R-Raymond), Chuck Morse (R-Salem) and Jim Rausch (R-Derry) in endorsing Governor Romney's candidacy.

"Gary Lambert has served his country and his state with honor. As a member of the U.S. Marine Corps, he fought to preserve our freedoms. In the State Senate he has been an advocate for New Hampshire's low tax environment," said Mitt Romney. "I am proud to have earned his support and look forward to campaigning with him across the Granite State."

"As a successful businessman and a fiscally responsible governor, Mitt Romney has the experience needed to fix our broken government and turn around our struggling economy. He has laid out bold plans to create jobs, maintain a strong and robust military and to invest in the resources we need to care for our veterans," said Senator Lambert. "In 2012, Republicans need a strong and experienced leader to defeat President Obama and restore America's prosperity. That leader is Mitt Romney."
