It's Official: Treasurer Loftis Endorses Romney
S.C. Treasurer Curtis Loftis says the former Massachusetts governor is the one to beat Obama.
As Patch reported was a distinct possibility last week, Treasurer Curtis Loftis joined former Gov. Mitt Romney's S.C. team.
Loftis will serve as the state chair for Romney's campaign, it was announced this morning.
“I am proud to announce State Treasurer Curtis Loftis’ support,” Romney said in a release. “South Carolina is an important part of my campaign and I look forward to working with Curtis as I travel across the state spreading my pro-growth message.”
“Mitt Romney has the experience and record South Carolina voters are looking for in the next president,” Loftis said in the release. “He has worked in the real economy and created jobs and cut spending as governor. These are the qualities that South Carolinians want in the person to replace President Obama and his failed policies.”
Romney will join the other top candidates for the GOP nomination today in Columbia for a forum hosted by Sen. Jim DeMint.
