As the Presidential race heats up, expect endorsements from Pa. Republicans to be heatedly sought after. In a press release today, Mitt Romney announced former Pennsylvania State Representative Katie True (R-Lancaster) will be supporting him.
“I’m honored to earn the support of such a principled state leader as Katie,” Romney stated.
True served in the Pa. State House of Representatives for sixteen years.
“Pennsylvania voters are looking for a candidate that will stand up for pro-growth policies that will empower small businesses and rebuild the middle class. In the coming months, I look forward to working with Katie to make this vision a reality,” the Republican hopeful proclaimed.
True said she believes that Romney is the right man for the job, saying “over the last few months, it has become clear to me that Mitt Romney is the one candidate that can defeat Barack Obama and put in place the policies that will restore America’s promise for all generations.”
Skeptical about the other Republican candidates, like Rick Santorum, True said “there are several candidates that talk the conservative talk, but we also need someone who knows how to make these ideas a reality.”
Santorum has 15 Pennsylvania senators rallying behind him. Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati and Senate Appropriations Chairman Jake Cornman all believe Santorum has what it takes to become the next POTUS.
Romney has the GOP big wigs in his back pocket. Even former President George H.W. Bush is rumored to be preparing to formally endorse Romney.
Correction: An earlier edition of this story indicated that Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi had endorsed in the race and that is incorrect. Pileggi has not endorsed in the Presidential race.
