Press Release - Mitt Romney Announces Support of North Carolina Elected Officials and Leaders

January 19, 2012

Mitt Romney today announced the support of North Carolina elected officials and leaders.

"It's wonderful to have the support of so many North Carolina conservatives," said Mitt Romney. "Since I started my campaign, I've looked to share my vision of how to create jobs and once again restore fiscal sanity in Washington. This show of support from leaders in the Tarheel State proves that my message is resonating."

Announcing his support, State Senator Tommy Tucker said, "North Carolinians are sick and tired of Washington's reckless spending. Mitt Romney spent his life as a conservative businessman. He knows that, in the real economy, you simply cannot keep spending more than you take in. As president, he will cut federal spending and push for a balanced budget amendment. We cannot risk another four years of Barack Obama's failed policies. I call on all conservatives that want a simpler, smaller, and smarter federal government to join me in supporting Mitt Romney."
