Romney snags endorsement from Puerto Rico Gov. Luis Fortuno

Luis Fortuno

TITUSVILLE, Florida -- Hoping to further ingratiate itself to Florida's Hispanic community, Mitt Romney's campaign announced Friday the endorsement of Puerto Rico's Governor Luis Fortuno. Fortuno will appear alongside Romney at a rally Friday evening in Orlando.
Puerto Rico has 23 delegates up for grabs in its March 18 caucuses -- 11 more than New Hampshire. An important issue to Puerto Rican voters is that of statehood, which will be voted on by the commonwealth later this year. Fortuno leads the pro-statehood New Progressive Party, and earlier today, Romney said he would lend his full support to Puerto Rico were they to vote in favor of seceding to the U.S.
Should the referendum vote determine that Puerto Rico would like to become a state, Congress and the president would need to make final approval of such an addition.

“ “I did not vote for President Obama … His whole platform was change, change. Well, very little has changed I know for the people that are our fans,” Van Zant said...

“America's entrepreneurship was fostered by our founding father's vision of a republic-- a small government limited by the constitution's enumerated powers.
“Speaking of a republic, when Benjamin Franklin was walking out of Independence Hall, after signing the constitution, he walked out and a woman approached him, and said ‘Sir, sir, what have you given us?’
“And he said, 'A republic, ma'am, if you can keep it.'
“I believe the best way to keep our republican form of government is with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan...
“Mitt Romney will preserve this exceptional American legacy… Mitt Romney will restore the American dream.”

“Eastwood, 82, said he hoped Romney would restore "a decent tax system that we need badly ... so that there's a fairness and people are not pitted against one another as who's paying taxes and who isn't." ”
"It's now more important than ever that we need Gov. Romney and I'm going to be voting for him as I know most of you will be ... we've got to just spread the word and get the whole country behind this..." — Clint Eastwood

"You look at what's going on with China, you look at what's going on with the other OPEC nations and how they are absolutely destroying this country, and he's the only one who talks about it," Trump told a group of reporters at an impromptu news conference in Las Vegas. "So that was very important to me. I thought he did very well in the debates, that was very important.... I think if he debates that well, I don't think Obama will fare well against him."
After Donald Trump announced that he will be backing Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election, the business tycoon told Neil Cavuto why he made his decision to back the former Massachusetts governor.
“I think that he will do really well. I loved his performance in the last two debates. I thought they were great and if he performs that way he will beat Obama very, very decisively in the debates and, I think, the election.”
Trump said that he certainly wouldn’t run for president if Romney gets the nomination.
When it comes to Newt Gingrich, he said, “I do like him. I do respect him, and he’s a member of my club in Washington. He’s a good guy, but I do think that Mitt Romney, who is also somebody I like and respect, I’ve said that also from the beginning, he’s going do very well against Obama.”
“If the right person gets in, this country becomes great again. That’s all I get out of it,” Trump said.

Jane and Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt's Mom
''Two days after the Springfield, Mo., News-Leader printed a letter to the editor penned by one Jane Pitt, LGBT activist group ThinkProgress identified the author of the Mitt Romney-supporting, gay-marriage-opposing missive as Brad's mother... the same woman whose son once said that he and his girlfriend wouldn't marry until everyone could legally tie the knot.''
Incidentally, Brad and Angelina Jolie's plan to get married anyway. Also, Angelina's dad, John Voight is also a Romney supporter:
Jon Voight, the star of "Midnight Cowboy" and father of Angelina Jolie.
''Voight told the crowd he was backing Romney because he was "strong" and "honest." He declared President Obama had "decided to follow his father's footsteps and take us to socialism." ...
''Explaining to the audience that he wasn't sure how to "chit chat with a famous actor" when he phoned Voight to ask for his support, Romney said he decided to talk about his kids.
''"I started talking about my five boys," the candidate explained. "I said, you know, it's easier to raise boys than girls. Well, after a long pause, he says, 'Tell me about it.'" ''
“Because he’s honest, because he’s charitable, because he’s pro-Israel,” Voight replied when I asked him today why he had endorsed Romney. “He’s a great guy, a great man... and he has a passion for Israel...”
“He’s a friend of Benjamin Netanyahu, and that speaks well, because I think Benjamin Netanyahu is a great man,” Voight added. “I think it would be a big relief for all Israelis who have any understanding of present politics to have a President Romney.”

Outdoor Television show Host Rob Keck endorses Mitt Romney
“As a hunter, as a conservationist, and as a father and grandfather, I’m very concerned about the future of America and the ability we have to pass along our rich hunting and angling heritage to the next generation. In order to ensure that America’s future is as bright as our past, we need an outstanding and trusted leader, someone who understands business and can fix our economy – that man is Mitt Romney. Mitt also understands the importance of wildlife conservation, as well as hunting and angling’s economic and political engine that powers America. He will ensure that this tradition continues and is strengthened.
“It is time to ‘Answer the Call,’ and express the power of the American sportsmen and women. I urge you to head to the polls this primary season and put Mitt Romney in the White House. He will fix America and lead the way in helping protect and preserve our rich hunting and fishing heritage. Please cast your vote for Mitt in this primary season and elect him this November.”
