MITT ROMNEY ANNOUNCES SUPPORT OF MICHIGAN CONGRESSWOMAN CANDICE MILLER
Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced the support of Michigan Congresswoman Candice Miller.
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of Congresswoman Miller,” said Mitt Romney. “A tireless advocate for her district and the state of Michigan, Candice Miller agrees with me that our nation’s top priorities must be to get our economy moving again and keeping America strong and secure. In her leadership on the Homeland Security Committee she is at the forefront of protecting our borders while also promoting trade that will help our economy grow. Congresswoman Miller has worked diligently to advance Michigan’s and our nation’s economic recovery and I am glad to have her strong support.”
“Mitt Romney is the person we need to lead our country,” said Congresswoman Miller. “Throughout this primary process the voters have vetted each candidate and after a spirited contest they have made clear who they believe is right person to lead our ticket and that is Governor Mitt Romney. I believe they have come to this conclusion because they know that Governor Romney will begin working on day one to turn around our economy. I know the challenges our country faces and I know Mitt Romney can change our nation’s course. I’m proud to stand with Governor Romney and offer him my strong support. I look forward to working with him to enact his agenda as he leads our nation as the next President of the United States.”
I guess Rep. Miller really loves Mitt Romney as a candidate because this is the second time she’s endorsed him this month.
From March 7th:
Saying that it’s “next to impossible” for Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich to win a majority of the Republican delegates, U.S. Rep. Candice Miller on Wednesday shifted gears and said it’s time for the GOP to unite behind Mitt Romney as their nominee.
Miller, who was one of the few major GOP elected officials in Michigan not to endorse Romney prior to the state’s Feb. 28 primary, said it’s “deciding time” and Republicans should coalesce around Romney, the frontrunner.
“When you look at the Super Tuesday results, people may say it wasn’t a knockout punch (for Romney). That may be, but I don’t see a path forward for Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich to gain enough delegates to win the nomination,” said Miller, a Harrison Township Republican.
(To be fair, Miller “declined to label her comments as an endorsement of Romney” back in early March but, seriously? What the heck else would you call that?)
I’ll bet I know what happened. I’ll bet someone dropped the official Romney Etch-A-Sketch and erased the first endorsement. Yup. I’ll bet that’s it.
