Michigan Leaders Lining Up for Romney

MI Atty Gen Mike Cox has endorsed Mitt Romney.


Along with receiving the hearty endorsement of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder yesterday, Governor Mitt Romney has also been given the stamp of approval from MI Attorney General Mike Cox, former MI Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop, and 15 additional members of the MI Legislature and MI Republican State Committee:

I am honored to have such overwhelming support from leaders across Michigan,” said Mitt Romney. “Michigan has been home to me. I remember when Michigan was the envy of the nation – I look forward to working with these leaders to bring jobs back and restore Michigan’s economy.”

“Michigan and the rest of the country can’t afford four more years of failed policies from President Obama,” said former Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox. “Mitt Romney is the Republican Party’s best chance

Michael Bishop, former MI Senate Majority Leader, is also backing Romney.

to defeat President Obama, repeal Obamacare, cut spending, and appoint Supreme Court Justices who respect the Constitution. Conservatives who are concerned about the direction of our country should join our growing Michigan team in supporting Mitt Romney – four more years of President Obama could be devastating for the country.”

Announcing his support, former Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop said, “Mitt Romney is a conservative businessman – he knows that Washington can’t keep spending more than it takes in and mortgaging our children and grandchildren’s future. As governor, he balanced his state’s budget every year and turned a $3 billion deficit into a $2 billion rainy day fund. That is the exact leadership we need in the White House. It will take someone with Mitt Romney’s lifetime of leadership to bring fiscal sanity back to the federal government.”

I hope every endorser is actively working to give Governor Romney a Michigan WIN. The latest MI poll from Rasmussen (Feb 14, 2012) shows the gap is closing:

Santorum – 35%
Romney – 32%
Paul – 13%
Gingrich – 11%

    Endorsements notwithstanding, Mitt and his team need to gain some much-needed positive momentum in the polls before the proverbial hilll to winning in MI, especially, grows any steeper and a political narrative more advantageous to Santorum takes root in the public mind.

  2. hunibuni2 says:

    This a Republican Primary, NO?? But it is an OPEN primary, which means the Ind. and Republicans can vote. That is not a True picture for the vote. If you are voting in a Republican Primary, then it should BE a REPUBLICAN PRIMARY!!! Closed to any other party. I have never seen such an out pouring of endorsement support!!!GO MITT!! We are behind you 100%, beause You are the ONLY ONE THAT CAN take our Country BACK!!
    Evangelicals for MITT!!

  3. How many endorsements went to Gingrich or Santorum from Michiganders?

    Oh, that’s right, they believe endorsements don’t matter. But wait, endorsements come from people, not money.

    Conservatives with strong opinions.
