Jeb Bush: Time for GOP to unite behind Mitt Romney



jebromney.jpgIn a sign that the protracted Republican presidential primary may finally be winding down, Jeb Bush today endorsed Mitt Romney. There are few more important GOP voices still on the sidelines. Said the former Florida Gov:

“Congratulations to Governor Mitt Romney on his win last night and to all the candidates for a hard fought, thoughtful debate and primary season.  Primary elections have been held in thirty-four states, and now is the time for Republicans to unite behind Governor Romney and take our message of fiscal conservatism and job creation to all voters this fall.  I am endorsing Mitt Romney for our Party’s nomination.  We face huge challenges, and we need a leader who understands the economy, recognizes more government regulation is not the answer, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism and works to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to succeed.”
