Tea party favorite Richard Mourdock received new support for his Senate campaign Saturday when Mitt Romney stopped by a fundraiser in Evansville, Ind.
 
“We gotta get this guy elected to the U.S. Senate,” Romney told a crowd gathered at Stepto’s Bar-B-Q Shack, reported NBC News.
 
During his short speech, Romney praised Mourdock, the current state treasurer, for defeating six-term senator Dick Lugar in the Republican primary. He also advocated for tea party policies such as a balanced budget.
 
“You can’t keep spending massively more than you take in,” Romney said explaining his five key principles for economic recovery.
 
“A treasurer knows that. A governor knows that. There’s only one place in America that doesn’t seem to understand that you can’t keep spending massively more than you take in every year, and that’s Washington. And one reason we’re both going there is to change Washington.”
 
After Romney turned the attention back to Mourdock, the senate candidate commented, “How proud I am to stand next to the president of the United States, Mitt Romney. And it’s funny, my opponent, Joe Donnelly, doesn’t want to be seen with their candidate. Isn’t that amazing?”
 
After the event, Romney attended a fundraiser at the home of local entrepreneur Steven Chancellor, the CEO of the American Patriot Group.
