A Letter from Governor Mitt Romney

Posted on 11/18/13 in Uncategorized, No Comments

Ann and I have nothing but fond memories of the time we spent campaigning in Idaho.

If there’s one thing I learned on the campaign trail in your fine state, it’s that Idahoans are straight-talking and tough.  Congressman Mike Simpson is no exception.

Born and raised in Idaho, Mike Simpson is now leading the fight in the United States House of Representatives to stop the liberal Obama agenda.

  • He voted over 40 times to repeal Obamacare;
  • He was an original co-sponsor and voted to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment;
  • He has earned an A+ record with the National Rifle Association and 100% lifetime rating with the National Right To Life; and
  • He is fighting to keep government out of our lives.

This stalwart conservative leader shares our values.  That’s why I am proud to endorse his re-election.

We can trust Mike Simpson to do what’s right for our families — and our future.

Congressman Mike Simpson is a proven conservative and “Idaho tough.”  But some groups from outside Idaho have decided to attack Mike and distort his conservative record.  He needs our help to fight back and set the record straight.

Will you please join me in supporting Mike’s campaign with a contribution of $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,600, or some other amount, today?

You have been one of my most loyal supporters and I hope you are still committed to our shared Republican values because Mike Simpson needs your help to win re-election in this volatile political environment.

Please take a moment to make your generous contribution to support Mike’s campaign online by visiting  www.simpsonforcongress.com.

Not one to get bogged down in partisan bickering or engage in political games, Mike takes his responsibilities as a public servant very seriously.  A powerful advocate for Idaho’s conservative values and priorities, he serves on the influential House Appropriations Committee where he has authored billions of dollars in cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget.

Widely respected for his ability to roll up his sleeves and get things done, Mike Simpson gained national attention for his bill to split the massive and overburdened 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and for his successful efforts to delist the gray wolf from the endangered species list and return it to state management.

Steady.  Determined.  Proven.

Mike Simpson is a true conservative.

No matter what the issue, you can count on Mike Simpson to fight for fiscal responsibility and individual freedom — the hallmarks of conservatism.  He’s a conservative with common sense — and exactly what we need in Congress.

If we are going to win the battle for our country, we must stand behind bold, conservative leaders like Mike Simpson.  The fight for real conservative reform cannot wait another day.

Your immediate support is urgently needed so Mike Simpson can defend this seat and remain in Congress fighting for Idaho’s conservative values.  He was one of the first to support my presidential campaign and played an important role on our team.  I am grateful for what both of you did for me last year.

Now it’s time for us to rally around Mike . . . please join his team today.

Sincerely,

Mitt Romney
