MISSOURI ENDORSEMENTS OF MITT ROMNEY:

   ★ - means endorsed Romney in both 2008 and 2012

   * - means endorsed Romney in 2012


* Fmr. Gov, Sen., U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft

“The election in November is as important an election as I can remember,” said Attorney General Ashcroft. “At home, we face economic and fiscal peril and abroad, we face uncertainty in volatile regions of the world. Our country needs an iron-willed president of integrity to lead us through these troubled times. No other candidate stands out for his executive leadership experience or ability to accomplish difficult tasks as does Mitt Romney.

“As a conservative who served as Governor of Missouri during the Reagan revolution, I admire Mitt’s record of fiscal responsibility, lower taxes, and defense of traditional values in a politically difficult state for a Republican. I had the opportunity to work with Mitt Romney on issues of national security during the 2002 Winter Olympics and counted him as a trustworthy, effective ally in the fight against terror while he was Governor of Massachusetts. I know that the lives and liberties of the American people will be secure with him as President. I am grateful for the opportunity to support him and urge all voters who want to restore America to her preeminent place of leadership in values, strength and prosperity to support him now and in November.”


Governor Matt Blunt (R-MO)

“Endorsing Governor Romney, Governor Blunt said, "Mitt Romney's strong conservative principles are right for America. He is a strong leader and a proven problem solver – in private business, the Olympics, and as Governor. Governor Romney lives the American values that we cherish. I believe he has a great vision for the future of the United States." ”




* Senator Roy Blunt

“Our nation faces historic challenges today, and under President Obama’s policies, we’ve witnessed high unemployment, skyrocketing debt, out-of-control spending, and burdensome regulations that have stifled job creation,” said Blunt. “Through his experience in the private sector and as governor, I believe Mitt has the right background to help create more economic certainty and spur job growth in Missouri and nationwide, and that’s why I’m proud to lead his Congressional Team.”

“Thanks to his experience in the private sector and as governor, I believe Mitt Romney is the best prepared to help get our nation's economy back on track,” said U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.). “Missourians are tired of President Obama's costly economic policies, which have led to out-of-control spending, record federal debt, and fewer private sector jobs nationwide.”


* Rep. Billy Long

“I’m extremely proud to support a true conservative like Mitt Romney,” said Congressman Billy Long. “Missouri voters — as well as voters across the country — are looking for someone who will reverse President Obama’s failed policies. Mitt Romney will get rid of Obamacare, stop our government’s out-of-control spending, and — most important of all — create jobs for the American people. If conservatives are serious about getting our country back on track, Mitt Romney is the clear choice.”


★ Fmr. Sen. Jim Talent (R-MO)

"Announcing his support, Senator Jim Talent said, “Mitt Romney has the experience from both the private and public sector to get our economy moving again. He has a record of creating jobs and balancing budgets that stands in contrast to President Obama’s failed record of job losses and record debt and deficits.” "

" “At this critical moment in our nation’s history, we need a president with experience in the real economy,” said Senator Jim Talent. “After three years of failed policies, Mitt Romney is the right person to lead an economic recovery and I am proud to help him in this endeavor.” "

"Governor Romney has shown extraordinary leadership during his many years of service," said Talent. "He has a strong conservative vision and a successful record of accomplishing that vision."

Sen. Talent: “I've admired from afar what he did in Massachusetts. I mean he's really applied conservative principles to the actual problems of governance and done it effectively. I thought he was the one who could energize, unite the republican party, and appeal to the middle. All my experiences with him indicate that... taking a 3 billion dollar deficit and turning it into a billion dollar surplus without raising taxes, a health-care plan that's going to eliminate the problem of the uninsured through private sector means, again without a tax increase, a whole series of measures that he's taken as governor show leadership and really make the government work on behalf of conservative principles for people and I think he can do the same thing as president... This is a man that can take the principles of our party and turn it into effective action in changing Washington, and that’s what we need right now... Governor Romney is a big believer in border security, stronger employer verification procedures-- that's the way we need to go...”

Sean Hannity: “Senator, why is Mitt Romney the conservative choice for America?”

Sen. Talent: “Well, because he's governed in a way that shows respect and Governor Romney believes that what's important about this country is what people build on their own and not the government and that's the essense of conservatism...”

* Fmr. Senator John C. Danforth (R-MO)

"This election is one of, if not the, most important of my lifetime. Our country faces the possibility of losing our place in the world if our economy fails to restart," Danforth says in a press release issued by the Romney campaign. "Mitt Romney has taken on significant challenges at every moment in his life. Whether it was turning around struggling companies, rescuing the Olympics, or restoring fiscal health in his state as governor, he has proven that he has both the skill and leadership ability to ensure that the United States remains the strongest and most respected nation in the world."


* Fmr. Sen. Kit Bond

“I’ve been listening intently to all the candidates in recent months and have come to the conclusion that there is only one who can defeat President Obama, restore conservative principles to the White House, and provide the leadership our country needs,” said former Senator Kit Bond. “That candidate is Mitt Romney and I am proud to support him. Time and again throughout his career, he has shown he can turn troubled enterprises around. That is precisely what we need right now. Unemployment is unacceptably high, home prices have fallen, and the American dream seems to be slipping away. I urge all those who are concerned about the future of this country to stand with me in supporting Mitt Romney.”


* State Auditor Tom Schweich

" “Gov. Romney is a proven leader and an expert at turning around troubled organizations,” Schweich said in an interview. “Right now our government is a troubled organization.” "

"State Auditor Tom Schweich said, “I am proud to stand behind Mitt Romney in his campaign for president. His experience in the private sector makes him the best candidate in the race to turn around our economy. He will provide the much needed leadership in Washington to get Americans back to work and restore fiscal sanity in government.” "

Senate President Pro Tem Rob Mayer:

“The next election will be one of the most important in generations. We can choose to continue on the high-spending and economically stagnant path we are on, or we can elect Mitt Romney, a conservative businessman with a lifelong record of results. Missouri voters are looking for a change in direction for our country – that is why they will support Mitt Romney.”

Speaker Steven Tilley:

“We have seen the results of having a president without experience working in the economy and they have not been good. Mitt Romney spent his life in the private sector and knows how economies grow and how jobs are created. Throughout his life, he has used conservative principles to turn around businesses, rescue the Olympics, and restore fiscal sanity in his state. I am honored to join his team with these outstanding leaders from Missouri. We will work hard to put him in the White House and put our country on the right track once again.”

House Speaker Rod Jetton

Speaker Jetton said, "Governor Romney is a strong conservative leader who will restore fiscal discipline in our nation's capital.

He has the values and the vision that are needed to keep America strong."


★ House Speaker-elect Ron Richard

"Governor Romney has a vision for making America stronger, with a strong economy, strong families and a strong military. His vision for conservative change in Washington is resonating with Republican voters in Missouri. Whether it was turning around companies, the 2002 Winter Olympic Games or the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Governor Romney has demonstrated that he is the kind of leader we need to lead our country forward."


Speaker Pro Tempore Bryan Pratt

“Governor Romney is a turnaround artist. He has successfully solved difficult problems in both the public and private sectors. He is the only candidate with the experience and leadership needed to get Washington back to conservative principles; less government, lower taxes, and less spending.”


Fmr. Speaker Pro Tem Rep. Carl Bearden

Former Representative Bearden said, "Washington is broken and we're not going to fix it by sending the same people back just to have them sit in different chairs."

Colonel Jackson also served in the Missouri State House of Representatives until 2006."

“Former State Rep. Jackson said, "I firmly believe that Mitt Romney is the only candidate with the experience, vision and values to lead our country forward. We are facing a new generation of global challenges. Governor Romney and I share the belief that we need an unquestionably strong military. With a record of strong, conservative leadership, Governor Romney is ready to meet these challenges. I am proud to give him my full support." ”
