STATEMENT BY MRS. RONALD REAGAN ON THE ENDORSEMENT OF MITT ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT
Los Angeles – Mitt and Ann Romney joined me at my home this afternoon for some lemonade and cookies and I offered my firm endorsement of his campaign for President.Although I know he will not be the official nominee of the Republican Party until August in Tampa, Florida, I am thrilled that after Tuesday’s primary he is the clear choice, having won the magic number of 1,144 convention delegates.
Ronnie would have liked Governor Romney’s business background and his strong principles, and I have to say I do too.I believe Mitt Romney has the experience and leadership skills that our country so desperately needs, and I look forward to seeing him elected president in November.

Mr. Bush, the 41st president, urged Republicans to coalesce behind Romney. From his office in Houston, with Romney sitting at his side, Mr. Bush said “it’s time for people to all get behind this good man.” (Political Hotsheet report by Leigh Ann Caldwell)
