Republican Congressional candidate Mark Amodei announced today that Mitt Romney has endorsed him in the September 13th Special Election to fill the vacant seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Announcing his support, Mitt Romney said, "Mark understands what is needed to bring jobs back to Nevada and get the country's economy back on track. He will be a strong voice for Nevadans and will stand up against President Obama's failed policies. Mark is exactly the leader we are looking for in Washington at such a critical time for both Nevada and the nation and I am proud to support him."
"I'm honored to have Mitt Romney's support," Amodei said. "His record of creating jobs and cutting taxes is very impressive and aligned with my priorities for Nevada. I'm running for Congress to be an independent and conservative voice for Nevada families and stand up to Washington's tax and spend culture.
"Nevada has led the nation in unemployment and foreclosure year after year. That's unacceptable. If we're going to get people back to work, we need to act now to fix our economy.
"In congress, I'll work to cut taxes and reduce the regulatory red tape to create jobs here in Nevada. And I will not rest until federal lands are freed up for more ranching, mining and energy development to create Nevada's desperately needed jobs."
Amodei is the Republican nominee in the September 13th Special Election to fill the vacancy in Nevada's 2nd Congressional District, which was opened by the appointment of former Congressman Dean Heller to the United States Senate.
