New York for Mitt!!
Assemblyman Robert J. Castelli with Mitt Romney

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has announced endorsements from two dozen members of the New York Assembly, including Assemblyman Robert J. Castelli (R, C – Goldens Bridge).

“I’ve had a chance to observe Governor Romney throughout his career, and found him to be level-headed, bipartisan and an individual who worked for the best interests of his constituents,” Castelli said. “I believe in this troubled economy, and troubled world, he has both the business-acumen to lead us out of a bad economy, and the consensus-building capability to unite us as Americans, and continue our strong partnerships with our allies in this troubled world.”

“President Obama has failed to create jobs or get spending under control,” Romney said. “Unless we change course, America might lose its place as the dominant power in the world. With the help of these leaders in New York, I will work to ensure that businesses can start hiring again, government stops growing, and our future is as bright as our past.”

“This election is not just about who can win the Republican-primary, but most importantly, who can win the Presidency and serve Americans in both parties for the greater good of America,” Castelli said. “That person will need to lead us through a tricky recovery, and form the kind of consensus that gets things done in Washington. I believe that Governor Romney is the man for the job.”

Announcing the support of other New York Assembly members, Minority Leader Brian Kolb said, “Mitt Romney is the one candidate with the values and experience that will be needed to go up against President Obama in November. Throughout his life, Mitt Romney has displayed leadership in tough situations – that is exactly what will be needed to turn around our economy.”
