“Republicans have an opportunity to make significant gains in the 2010 elections. The reason is because people are fed up with overspending, deficits, higher taxes and the lack of jobs. Our PAC is supporting candidates who are opposed to President Obama’s job-killing tax and spend agenda and committed to putting our nation on the right track,” said Romney.
In the first two quarters of 2010, the PAC has supported over 150 Republican candidates and conservative causes in states across the country including Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia.
