Chairman’s Welcome: August 29, 2012Posted by chris on Aug 29, 2012
On Tuesday night, I was joined on the floor of the 2012 Republican National Convention by 75 fellow Georgia Delegates. As a group, we had the great fortune of casting 72 votes for Governor Mitt Romney, who crossed the threshold and is now the official Republican presidential nominee! It was an exciting moment for our Party, and a monumental occasion for our nation.
Later in the evening, we were privileged to hear from dozens of proud Republican leaders, including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, rising star Mia Love of Utah and new Alabama Republican Artur Davis. One speech truly stood out, however, and that was delivered by Mrs. Ann Romney – the next First Lady of the United States of America!
Ann spoke to the Convention not as an elected official or a politician, but rather as a patriot, a proud wife and a brave woman. The speech itself was remarkable, but the message within was truly inspiring. As she closed her remarks, Mrs. Romney delivered a call to all Americans, stating: “This is our country. This is our future. These are our children and grandchildren. You can trust Mitt. He loves America. He will take us to a better place, just as he took me home safely from that dance. Give him that chance. Give America that chance.”
Each day between now and November 6th, the Georgia Republican Party will heed Ann’s call, working around-the-clock to ensure that all Georgians have the opportunity to give Governor Romney the chance to make America great once again. We will fight for our generation, just as we will fight for our children and grandchildren. Future generations deserve to live in the land of opportunity, not the current Obama state of fiscal irresponsibility, overreaching government and insurmountable debt.
The choice in November is as clear as we have ever seen – a leader that will take our nation to a better place, as Ann Romney so proudly outlined, or a failed president who has given us more debt, less jobs and a dimmer future.
Mitt Romney is the answer, and I look forward to celebrating the inauguration of President & First Lady Romney in January of 2013. ‘America’s Comeback Team’ is here to stay!
Let’s take our country back,
