Mitt Romney To Be In Illinois With More Endorsements

Mitt Romney will  continue to keep busy with endorsing Republican candidates by going to Illinois tomorrow where he will be attending two events.  Romney’s scheduale begins in the morning where he will attend an RGA breakfast for Republican Governor candidate Bill Brady followed by a luncheon in support of  Congressman Mark Kirk’s U.S. Senate campaign.

With Illinois unemployment rate 10.1% which is  above the national average of 9.6%, Mitt Romney continues to hammer his message that job creation is the number one priority for Illinois and America:

“At a time when too many of our elected officials put special interests ahead of the public interest, it is more important than ever that we elect candidates who are dedicated to enacting the pro-growth policies Illinois – and our country – needs.  Illinois is fortunate to have so many strong candidates dedicated to turning our economy around and I am proud stand with them today.”
