U.S. Representative Mary Bono Mack (R-Palm Springs) has endorsed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney for the Republican bid for the 2012 presidential race.
Bono Mack was one of ten elected officials from California to endorse Romney on Thursday.
"Mitt has a strong, proven record of leadership in both the private and public
sectors," Bono Mack said in a news release. "As President, Mitt Romney will focus his attention and considerable skills on reviving our economy and creating jobs."
Romney is considered one of the leading candidates for the Republican nomination, which he also sought in 2008.
The former Governor is known for his business sensibilities, but has come under fire for overseeing a massive change to the Massachusetts health care plan, which is considered the basis for the national health care plan President Obama enacted last
Romney was a part of Bono Mack’s local campaign efforts, helping raise $50,000 for the Representative’s 2010 re-election with a fundraising appearance in Palm Desert.
