Governor Sununu,

Over the course of this campaign you have made it abundantly
clear that you would endorse a conservative governor a laudable

However, I am surprised that you believe Mitt Romney meets that
threshold. Consider some of the fundamental issues:

· While Mitt Romney opposed the Bush tax cuts and raised taxes
and fees by $750 million in Massachusetts, I signed the largest tax
cut in Utah history which helped our state lead the nation in job

· While Mitt Romney implemented government healthcare in
Massachusetts which included an individual mandate and
became the blueprint for Obamacare I signed free-market
healthcare reIorm described as 'the other end oI the spectrum¨
from the Obama-Romney approach.

· While Mitt Romney once declared that he does not 'line up with
the NRA¨ and pledged to not 'chip away¨ at Massachusetts`
onerous gun control laws, I signed landmark legislation to defend
the Second Amendment.

· While Mitt Romney was once ardently pro-choice stating in
1994 that 'abortions should be saIe and legal¨ I am proud to be a
lifelong defender of the sanctity of life.

· While Mitt Romney proudly declared himself an independent
during the Reagan-Bush years even saying during his Senate
campaign that he was 'not trying to return to Reagan-Bush¨ I am
proud to have served in President Reagan`s administration which
ushered in a golden era of prosperity in America.

When you look at his past statements, positions and voting record,
the idea that Mitt Romney is a principled conservative is an
impossible conclusion. It is more than his one term dealing with a
liberal legislature; it`s a liIetime and record oI inconsistent and

liberal positions.

One last thing I almost forgot to mention: while we both served
President George H.W. Bush you as Chief of Staff and me as
ambassador to Singapore Mitt Romney supported and voted for
Democratic presidential candidate and potential Bush opponent
Paul Tsongas.

Mitt Romney and I have two very different records and visions for
America`s Iuture, which I look Iorward to sharing with voters in
New Hampshire and across the nation. I even look forward to
sitting down with you at some point if you ever care to learn the
