Today the Romney for President campaign issued a press release, with my approval, that I support Mitt Romney for President.
As you know, I had not previously endorsed any candidate for President. My primary goal and focus has always been on supporting whatever candidate has the best chance to beat Barack Obama. We have reached a time when it is clear to me that Governor Mitt Romney is the candidate with the best chance to win in November.
-- Romney has far more delegates than any of the other candidates.
-- Romney has won primaries in the crucial states that Republicans must win in November, such as Florida and Ohio.
-- Romney consistently polls strongest in winning crucial Independents and disillusioned Democrats.
I have no doubt that Mitt Romney will make a very good President. I believe he is a man of character with the background to understand our economic challenges -- and the strength to correct our course. I know a number of his advisors on national security issues, and they are first rate.
In sum, I believe it is time for Republicans to stop attacking one another and to unite behind our strongest candidate. Personal preferences must take a back seat to the necessity of denying President Obama and his administration another four years. There is simply too much at stake to do anything else.
