“Alaska’s agenda is to help America’s agenda: we produce energy, and help keep America strong. The current White House doesn’t get it. We need a leader like Mitt Romney who understands and who will help us help the country. As governor, he created thousands of jobs, balanced the state’s budget, and cut taxes. His record of results speaks for itself – that is why I am supporting him.”
“Mitt Romney has such widespread support in Alaska because he is the only conservative candidate with the record and vision to defeat President Obama. More than any other candidate, he stands for a prosperous future for Alaska and the nation.”
“ "When I met with Governor Romney, I was deeply impressed by his knowledge of Alaska issues and his commitment to the responsible development of our resources to benefit our nation," said Mead Treadwell. "Governor Romney has the experience, vision, and values to lead our nation with integrity and success. Alaska voters can look at his tested and proven record to know that he is the candidate to overcome the challenges facing our nations just as he has in private business, at the Winter Olympics and as Governor. Governor Romney is the leader our country needs." ”
- Mead Treadwell, former Deputy Commissioner of Alaska's Department of Environmental Conservation, Senior Fellow of the Institute of the North.
Why I Support Mitt Romney, by Lieutenant Governor Mead Treadwell
"... America needs a turnaround. To win less government, more freedom, and a stronger America in the world, we need the right candidate at the top of the 2012 GOP ticket...
"After a successful campaign in Alaska four years ago, Mitt has stayed in touch with Alaskans, and his son, Josh has been here several times. In a letter to Alaska Republicans this month, Romney recognizes Alaska’s potential to contribute to America’s economic and military strength. He understands our pipeline is running just one third full. He knows that the Obama Administration’s slowpoke approach to development here is putting Alaska jobs – and the nation’s energy security – in danger...
" “Government,” said Romney, “exists to protect your freedoms, not to take them away.” ...
"Republicans are known for standing up – for economic and military strength, for free markets, limited government, individual liberty, and for life. Advocates within our party have made a name leading for each of these principles. Mitt Romney is the one candidate whose conviction and record brings them together for us all."
“ "I am supporting Governor Romney because his record shows that he can improve America. He earned trust by taking the helm of the Salt Lake City Olympic Committee at a time when it was rocked by scandal, holding everyone involved to a higher standard. Additionally, he earned respect by keeping government spending under control as Governor of Massachusetts. After speaking with Governor Romney, I know he will advocate for allowing the private sector to bring cheaper, cleaner energy to America in the form of natural gas from Alaska. He will create a stronger economy, without losing focus on America's safety in the fight against terrorism," said Lt. Governor Parnell.”

“Mitt Romney has had the lifelong experiences needed to turn around our economy,” said Senator Murkowski. “Whether it was his ability to turn around the Massachusetts economy or turn around businesses in the private sector, Mitt Romney has demonstrated the leadership that we need in the White House to get the country on the right track. He has also laid out a plan to get our country on the path toward energy independence. Mitt Romney understands the importance of Alaska as a leader in our country’s energy production and I look forward to working with him on such an important economic and national security matter.”
“ "Governor Romney is the proven executive that Alaskans and all
Americans need in the White House. At this time of economic uncertainty, we
need a leader who actually understands how the economy works and why jobs
are created. That leader is Mitt Romney. Furthermore, he has promised to
tackle some of our country's most long-standing challenges, including
energy independence. Like most Alaskans, he also supports opening up ANWR,"
said Senator Murkowski.”
