Phil Handy joins Mitt Romney campaign



Winter Park businessman Phil Handy, a national co-finance chairman for Tim Pawlenty's presidential campaign and leader of Pawlenty's Florida campaign, is joining Mtt Romney's campaign. He will be Co-Chair of Romney's Florida Advisory Committee and as Co-Chair of his National Education Policy Committee.

Handy: "President Obama and his policies have failed to deliver promised results to the American people. Mitt Romney’s leadership is needed today more than ever. His record as Governor of Massachusetts and experience in the private sector gives me great confidence that he can put our country back on the path to prosperity. He understands the important connection between America’s global economic competitiveness and world-class schools.  As governor, he emphasized innovation and results at the state level and guided Massachusetts to distinction as a national leader in education.”
