BREAKING – Unequivocal Unity – Bills Endorses Romney
Republican US Senate candidate Kurt Bills has ”unequivocally” endorsed Mitt Romney. I can confirm this is happening this morning. MPR & Davis & Emmer are both reporting this.
MPR: Capitol View: Republican Kurt Bills will hold a Thursday newser to call on all Republicans to unite behind Mitt Romney in advance of the RNC Convention. Bills was elected as a delegate to the RNC because he backed Texas Congressman Ron Paul’s campaign for president.
Its a big deal because I’ve talked to many people who will have their names on the ballot this November who were growing very worried. Why? Because if the top of the ticket in Minnesota believed what the Queen B of the Ron Paul campaign did, then the RNC & Romney campaigns would divert resources away from Minnesota and that would help defeat many people further down the ballot in November.
Folks, this is what Republican unity looks like. Its not I win, you have to get over it and forget everything you know cause things are different now cause, because as I said, I won. Unity is about us all realizing that we actually have shared principles and if we all work together for those goals, and if we come together we will be able to defeat the Democrats and save America.
We have 75 days to save America by defeating Amy Klobuchar and Barack Obama.
Here is the release.
Election Day 2012 will be one of the most critical days in American history. This is truly an historic election that will define an era.
If Obama and the Democrats win this election, America will never look the same. Obama promised to “fundamentally transform America” in 2008, and we’ve seen the results: the government take-over of healthcare, bank bailouts, a dependency culture, rising prices and shrinking wages. He has embraced too-big-to-fail, and made the rest of us too-small-to-win.
In order to defeat Obama and his lieutenant Amy Klobuchar, Republicans of all stripes must stand together. We cannot afford to squabble, and mustn’t equivocate. We need to unite— standing on our shared principles—to win in November.
That’s why I’m declaring my unequivocal support for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. After a hard-fought Republican primary, they alone have the ability to beat Barack Obama in November and help America rediscover its conservative principles.
Mitt Romney is visiting Minnesota today, and I am proud to work with him to defeat Barack Obama.
In the primaries I supported Ron Paul for President. Today I am an enthusiastic supporter of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, and will devote every day between now and November 6th to ensuring a Republican victory in Minnesota for Romney and every other Republican candidate on the ticket.
As Republicans and conservatives, that which unites us is far greater than what divides us, and I hope you will join me in building an organization—from the bottom, up—that can defeat Barack Obama and Amy Klobuchar.
Too much is at stake not to jump into this fight wholeheartedly. We need to tame the deficit; we need to pay down the debt; we need to get the government out of our lives, our health care, and our private lives. Barack Obama is expanding government’s role; Republicans will roll back government intrusion.
Winning this election isn’t everything; it is the only thing. That is why, in addition to taking back this US Senate seat for Minnesota, I am committed to supporting all Republican candidates for office—and am asking you to do the same.
We’ve had our differences, and fought the good fight. Now is the time to close ranks. Nothing less than the future of our nation is at stake. Work like your children’s future depends upon winning…because it does.
