Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced his “Montana leadership team,” which included endorsements from three former governors.
Former Montana Gov. Marc Racicot (1993-2001) announced his support last week. And Tuesday Judy Martz (2001-2005) and Tim Babcock (1962-1969) joined him in backing the GOP frontrunner.
"Governor Romney, as a former chief executive, has the experience, vision and values to lead our country,” Martz said. “His proven record of turning around companies and the state of Massachusetts, not to mention his success with the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, demonstrates that he has the strong leadership abilities to turn around our country. He is the one Republican candidate that can bring the conservative principles of lower taxes, restrained spending and smaller government to Washington.”
Along with the former governors, Romney also announced that he is backed locally by former Whitefish Sen. Bob Depratu, former Polson Rep. John Mercer and Bigfork Rep. Scott Reichner. A press release says Reichner is general chairman of the Romney for President Montana Committee.
Montana’s Republican primary is held on June 5 and few expect it to last that long.
