Mitt Romney today announced the support of New Hampshire State Senator David Boutin (R-Hooksett). Senator Boutin joins State Senators Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro), Gary Lambert (R-Nashua), Jack Barnes (R-Raymond), Chuck Morse (R-Salem), Jim Rausch (R-Derry) and Tom Deblois (R-Manchester) in supporting Governor Romney's candidacy.

"David Boutin has been a tireless advocate for the traditional New Hampshire principles of lower taxes, limited government and less spending," said Romney. "I am honored to have earned his support and pleased that he has agreed to join my campaign to create jobs and grow our economy."

"Mitt Romney understands that our country can't continue spending more than we take in. Mitt recognizes the extraordinary challenges facing our country and he has laid out bold plans to cut spending, jump start our economy and create jobs," said Senator Boutin. "As a fiscally responsible governor, Mitt balanced budgets and as successful businessman he turned around struggling enterprises. He has the executive experience, the skills and the fiscally conservative values needed to defeat President Obama and restore fiscal sanity to Washington."
