A former Senate state director for Hillary Clinton and assistant to President Bill Clinton is throwing her support behind Mitt Romney, Romney’s campaign announced on Saturday.

Gigi Georges, in a statement released by the Romney campaign, said she’s been an active Democrat for most of her life, and is “proud to have worked for President Bill Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton, and, during that time, I saw firsthand what can be accomplished by strong, bipartisan leadership. I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are important to the American people. And that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney.”

Georges served as a special assistant to President Clinton, where she coordinated domestic policy issues for the National Economic Council and then went on to serve as Senator Hillary Clinton’s state director in New York

“Governor Romney has a plan to restore the prosperity this country deserves and expects,” she said in the statement. “He will work with people of good will no matter what their party, and he will pursue the policies that are in the best interest of our country, no matter who proposes them.

"That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago. But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just another one he has broken. We can’t have four more years of failed policies and two parties that can’t work together. We need the change Mitt Romney is offering.”

Romney said in a statement, “I am proud to have the support of Gigi Georges. She and I both know that strong leadership and good ideas are not the purview of one political party or another. I look forward to working with her and all Americans who want to move this country forward, whether they be Democrats, Republicans, or Independents.”
