Wyoming Lawmakers Voice Support at State GOP Convention
Mitt Romney announced the support of Wyoming Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso.
“I am honored to have Mike and John’s support,” said Mitt Romney. “They share my vision for shrinking the federal government, putting an end to burdensome regulations that stifle job creation, and making our tax policies more competitive with countries around the world. With their assistance and hard work, we can win in November and change the direction of the country.”
“Our country desperately needs someone who has been in business. We have to save America. We can't continue to allow a failure of leadership that just picks on business and wastes money. We need someone who will follow through, not just give empty speeches every day. We need someone who has actually done something in government,” said Senator Enzi. “We need a problem solver. So I am wholeheartedly endorsing Mitt Romney for president and urging everyone to support him, to get out the vote for him and to vote for him.”
Senator Barrasso, Chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, said, “Ultimately, this election is about the failed policies of the Obama Administration. Mitt Romney will hold this administration accountable for its irresponsible energy agenda, the explosion of job-killing regulations and for the massive increase in wasteful spending. And we will work together to repeal and replace President Obama's unprecedented Washington take-over of our health care system. Wyoming, and our country, simply can't afford more of the same. I endorse Mitt Romney and will be actively working to help him win in November,” Senator Barrasso concluded.
