Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney continues to amass significant endorsements, with three Texas congressmen, including National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, announcing their support Thursday. Reps. John Carter and Mac Thornberry also endorsed Romney, The Hill
In a statement, Sessions urged Republicans to "unite behind the one candidate who can lead our party, win in November, and put in place conservative pro-growth policies to restart our economy."
Romney is a "proven job creator," Carter said. "It is rare that leaders come along with such a tremendous record in the private and public sectors.” Carter endorsed Romney in 2008 but had opted for Texas Gov. Rick Perry this time around. Perry withdrew from the race in January.
Thornberry said Romney will “not only defeat Barack Obama, but implement pro-growth policies that will scale back the size of government and create jobs.”
With the Texas primary coming up May 29, the former Massachusetts governor is clearly pleased with the show of support. “These three men come from a long line of great conservative leaders from Texas and I am proud to have their support," Romney said in a statement. “They share my goals for a smaller government, less debt, and more jobs for our country.”
