MITT ROMNEY DELIVERS REMARKS ON SUPER TUESDAY Boston, MA –
Mitt Romney tonight delivered remarks in Boston, Massachusetts. The followingremarks were prepared for delivery: Thank you! What a great night! And thank you, Massachusetts! We are excited to be in the Bay State tonight celebrating withfamily and friends who have worked tirelessly on this campaign. And, of course, it’s an honor to have so many of the citizens I served as governor join our cause. Your support meanseverything to me, and I will not let you down. Tonight, we are counting up the delegates for the convention – and counting down the days untilNovember. We’re going to take your vote and our victory all the way to the White House! It’s been a long road to Super Tuesday. My opponents have all worked very hard – and I’d liketo congratulate Newt Gingrich on a good night in Georgia, Rick Santorum on his night, and RonPaul for his steadfast commitment to our Constitution and his strong support in every state.We started our campaign nine months ago on a New Hampshire farm not too far from here.It was a beautiful spring day full of hope and promise, a day that made us all recognize onceagain how lucky we are to be Americans. What we launched that day was not just an effortto win more votes – or more delegates – it was the start of an effort to restore the promise of America, a promise we all know has been frayed by these difficult times.We’ve sounded our clarion call across this country, from airport tarmacs to factory floors, fromdoor to door, and heart to heart. I’ve met with moms and dads, teachers and students, businessowners and factory workers. I’ve listened and I’ve learned. I hope I’m a better candidate for it.And I will be forever grateful for this greatest of experiences.I’ve met people like Norm Byrne, who exemplify the innovative spirit that built this country. Norm didn’t get to go to college. He doesn’t have an engineering degree. But he does haveover 100 patents to his name. He turned a small shop in his basement into a successfulcompany that helped build an industry. And it’s entrepreneurs like Norm who are going to getthe American economy back on track. I’ve met parents like David McArthur, whose children have served and suffered for their countryin war. David’s son was seriously injured in Afghanistan. He returned from the front lines onlyto face a new fight to get the medical care he needs – and he has surely earned. As I toldDavid, I believe that to those who put everything on the line, we owe everything they need.America’s veterans deserve a lot better than long lines and reduced benefits. And, as President,I’m going to make sure they get it. As a candidate for President, I’ve had the privilege of meeting people like Norm and David. Their stories are inspiring. But I’ve also met people who are really hurting in this stagnantObama Economy – and their stories are heart-breaking.Some have lost their jobs, others work two jobs just to get by. Some used to be middle class,but now they are struggling again, right back where they started. The prices for gas and foodand clothing keep going up, but their paycheck stays the same.
