Mitt had this to say about Meg Whitman’s victory yesterday:
Meg Whitman’s decisive primary victory is good news for California voters who are looking for a strong leader with turnaround skills who knows how to balance a budget and create jobs. Meg is an outsider, with no ties to the political status quo, and she is far and away the best candidate in this race to get California moving in the right direction again.
He had this to say about Carly Fiorina’s victory. Carly had not been previously endorsed by Mitt:
Carly Fiorina is a dynamic leader with proven skills who is committed to getting our economy back on track with pro-growth policies that will create jobs. She joins a number of Republican candidates from California that we can count on to say no to reckless spending in Washington and yes to restoring fiscal sanity.
Mitt Romney’s Free and Strong America PAC has announced a second wave of California endorsements:
Carly Fiorina CA-Sen $5,000
Kevin McCarthy CA-22 $2,500
Dana Rohrabacher CA-46 $2,500
Jeff Denham CA-19 $2,500
Van Tran CA-47 $2,500
Tony Strickland CA-Cntlr $0
Mitt Romney’s Free and Strong PAC has announced six endorsements in the state of Virginia:
Rep. Eric Cantor VA-7 $5,000
Keith Fimian VA-11 $2,500
Morgan Griffith VA-9 $2,500
Robert Hurt VA-5 $2,500
Scott Rigell VA-2 $2,500
Barbara Comstock VA-Leg $1,000
The $5,000 to Eric Cantor was sent earlier.
Mitt had this to say about the endorsements:
Rather than focusing on turning our economy around and creating new jobs, too many of our leaders are instead pursuing a dangerous big-government, anti-growth agenda that will burden our children and grandchildren for years to come. This is why it is so important that we support leaders in Virginia – and across the country – who will stand up to higher taxes, higher spending, and higher debt, and fight to get our economy back on track.
Mitt Romney is now headed back to S.C. for Nikki Haley to help her win her runoff.
