(Boston, MA) -- Mitt Romney today announced the support of Tom Fetzer, the former Mayor of Raleigh and former Chairman of the Republican Party of North Carolina.
"In order to defeat President Obama in November, I will need the support of leaders like Tom in North Carolina," said Mitt Romney. "Four years ago, President Obama came to North Carolina and promised to solve the problems in our country that had only been talked about. Four years later, President Obama has failed to implement policies to create jobs and cut spending. It is time for a change in the White House if we are going to get the country on the right track. I am proud to have Tom's support, and look forward to working with him to bring real change to Washington."
"Washington has a spending problem and President Obama is making it worse," said Tom Fetzer. "Mitt Romney has proposed bold solutions to fix our spending crisis. He comes from the private sector and knows that we can't spend more than we are taking in. As Governor, he took a $3 billion deficit and turned it into a $2 billion rainy day fund. And unlike President Obama, Mitt Romney knows how to create jobs - he did it in the private sector and he did it as governor. With a record like that, North Carolinians can be proud to stand with Mitt Romney."
