Governor Mitt Romney is uniquely positioned to serve Utah and fight for Utahns. He led the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City and, with a team of volunteers and managers, turned the struggling Games into a success story.
In 2012, Mitt was the Republican nominee for the office of President of the United States. He was a candidate for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination and served as the Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 through 2007.
Mitt is a deficit hawk. During his service as governor, he worked across the aisle to cut taxes 19 times, and balanced the budget every year. In the U.S. Senate, Mitt will work with like-minded senators to reduce the $21 trillion national debt because he believes it is inexcusable to saddle us and our children with such a burden.
Throughout his career, Mitt has campaigned with 40 Republican senators and has long-standing relationships that will allow him to get more done for Utah and the country.
Mitt believes that powers not reserved to the federal government must be returned to the states. Utah is better equipped to handle policies regarding such matters as education, public lands, school safety, water rights, and healthcare. Utah knows what’s right for Utah, not the federal government.
Mitt believes in family values. He has been married to his wife Ann for 40 years. Together they have five sons and 24 grandchildren. On his long list of achievements, Mitt has said that being married to Ann and raising his boys is his greatest accomplishment.
Talk is cheap. Action is essential. Mitt is committed to getting things done for Utah. He will serve with honor, integrity, and in a manner that will make Utahns proud.
