Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney announced Tuesday that conservative activist Christine O’Donnell has supported his bid for the White House.
“Christine has been a leader in the conservative movement for many years,” former Massachusetts Gov. Romney said in a statement carried by Fox News. “Christine recognizes that excessive government threatens us now and threatens future generations, and I am pleased to have her on my team.”
O’Donnell — a former Delaware candidate for the U.S. Senate — said, “For me, this endorsement comes down to trust. I am endorsing Governor Romney because I trust him to do the right thing. He has the strength of conviction to do the right thing regardless of opposition.
“America needs a president who is not a Washington Insider. America needs a president who hasn’t been playing the game for the last three decades. America needs a president who can turn our economy around, put Americans back to work, and will lead with stability, integrity and the values that we hold dear.”. . .
