'' "Gov. Romney's message of lowering taxes, promoting traditional values, and providing for a strong national defense [should] resonate deeply with the people of Alabama," Rogers, R-Saks, said in a statement.''
Rep. Mike Rogers: "What I hear in D.C. about Governor Romney is people say its a winner, in our Republican conference.
"More people have had a chance to meet him and been just as equally impressed with him as I have been.
"But more importantly than that in this town, is they sense a winner. And we want to keep the Whitehouse in 2008 and Governor Romney is the guy that can do it."
Interviewer: "And can you tell me some values you share with Governor Romney?"
Rep. Mike Rogers: "Well, I'm very pro life, I'm a conservative Repubican from the South. I'm very pro life. I care about that. I care about his fiscal responsibility, and what he's done as governor of Massachusetts. He has really taken a state there that was in deep deficit spending, and turned it around in one term.
And this is in an area that is not friendly territory, which demonstrates some real leadership skills and character. I'm about to hit my 25th anniversary and I appreciate the fact that he's been married to the same woman for 38 years."

"It is past time for Republicans to unite behind our candidate for president and that candidate is Mitt Romney," Bachus said in the prepared statement.

Whether in business or public service, Governor Romney has a proven record of embracing new ideas and providing the strong leadership that our country needs today. I look forward to working with Governor Romney and advancing his optimistic vision for a stronger, safer, and more prosperous nation." ''

State Senator Cam Ward said, “Mitt Romney is the candidate with the vision our country needs. As Governor, he balanced the budget without raising taxes and created jobs. I am confident that, as president, he will be able to get our country moving forward and put Americans back to work.”
Announcing his support, State Representative Blaine Galliher said, “Mitt Romney’s plan for more jobs, smaller government, and less debt is exactly what conservatives are looking for in Alabama. After three years of exploding debt and fewer jobs, it is clear that we need a proven job creator and budget cutter like Mitt Romney in the White House. We are supporting Mitt Romney because our country can’t afford four more years of President Obama and because Alabama deserves a proven leader like Mitt Romney as president.”

"... Romney is an extremely successful businessman and was a very competent governor who accomplished much of his agenda by working across party lines.
"Given an economy that continues to struggle and a Congress at war with itself, Romney's strengths separate him from the Republican Party's other would-be challengers to Obama... He is an able fundraiser and much better organized than his rivals, which reflect well on his competency.
"That competency shone through with Romney's rescue of the scandal-ridden 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. Romney came on board after previous leaders resigned amid bribery charges and left the event with a $379 million shortfall. The Games ended up making a $100 million profit.
"In Massachusetts, one of the country's most liberal states, Romney worked with an overwhelmingly Democratic Legislature to adopt sweeping education reforms that included testing and accountability for teachers and schools, as well as incentives for teachers whose students perform well..."
"Alabama voters who want to return a Republican to the White House should take a reality check before voting in Tuesday’s primary...
"To defeat President Barack Obama, the GOP will need to capture the support of independents and moderates. Mitt Romney is the only candidate on the ballot with the ability to accomplish this.
"But no one should consider Romney the candidate of last resort. The former governor of Massachusetts is an experienced leader with the skills and integrity needed to guide the world’s most powerful nation.
"He has a record of taking troubled entities and turning them around. That record includes the role he played in saving the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City when the event was threatened by mismanagement and fallout from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks...
"With President Obama’s popularity growing — on the wings of an improving economy, successful military operations and a rebounding auto industry — Republicans are seeking a winning candidate in November. We believe that candidate is Mitt Romney."
“In a recent debate, Mitt Romney showed viewers why he is the best person to reform government. As a businessman, he constantly needed to meet a budget, make cuts where needed, and provide the best possible product to the customer. Politicians in Washington have clearly lost their focus on we, the customer. Mitt Romney will provide the best leadership and will tackle the big spending in Washington and let us keep our heard-earned tax dollars. Alabamians need to vote to bring positive...”
