Congressman Bob Gibbs (R-OH) made the following statement announcing his endorsement of Governor Mitt Romney for President:
"I am proud to endorse Governor Mitt Romney as the Republican nominee for president. Our country needs a leader who has not only studied economics, but truly understands economic principles. We need a leader who has not only created jobs, but who understands that more government regulations are stifling job creation. And we need a leader who is ready to end the Obama Administration's failed policies that are keeping so many out of work so we can get our country back on a sustainable fiscal path to prosperity.
"I commend Senator Santorum for advancing important issues and for his spirited primary efforts.
"I look forward to making Governor Romney the next president of the United States."
