This is not an ordinary election -- because this is not an ordinary time.
After four years of getting the run-around, America needs a turnaround. And the only man for the job is Mitt Romney.
I'm excited to follow his lead, to join his team, and to pursue an agenda that will get our country back on track.
We know what we believe in. We believe in the hard work and ingenuity of the American people who built this country.
I accept the calling of my generation to give our children the America that was given to us -- with opportunity for the young and security for the old. I know that we are ready to meet serious challenges in a serious way, without excuses and idle words.
So here is our pledge:
We will not duck the tough issues, we will lead.
We will not spend four years blaming others, we will take responsibility.
We will not try to replace our founding principles, we will reapply them.
The work ahead will be hard -- but these times demand the best of us. Together, we can change it.
Join Mitt, the Republican team, and me -- and donate today to help us build a better future for America.
