H. Ross Perot, writing in the Des Moines Register:
Our country faces a momentous choice. The fact is the United States is on an unsustainable course. At stake is nothing less than our position in the world, our standard of living at home and our constitutional freedoms. That is why I am endorsing Mitt Romney for president. We can’t afford four more years in which debt mushrooms out of control, our government grows and our military is weakened.
In case you’re wondering, Perot won 8.5 percent in Iowa in 1996, the last year he ran for president, about the same as his nationwide total that year. He finished in second place in Maine and Utah in 1992.
