Jeb Bush Endorses Romney

Jeb Bush Endorses Romney

By Tom Bevan - March 21, 2012


Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush released a statement Wednesday morning endorsing Mitt Romney for president. "Now is the time for Republicans to unite behind Governor Romney and take our message of fiscal conservatism and job creation to all voters this fall," Bush said.

The former two-term governor of Florida remains a popular figure within the Republican Party and has been consistently mentioned as a potential choice in a brokered-convention scenario.  Bush's endorsement comes just hours after Romney's double-digit win in the Illinois primary on Tuesday.

Bush's full statement reads:

“Congratulations to Governor Mitt Romney on his win last night and to all the candidates for a hard fought, thoughtful debate and primary season. Primary elections have been held in thirty-four states, and now is the time for Republicans to unite behind Governor Romney and take our message of fiscal conservatism and job creation to all voters this fall. I am endorsing Mitt Romney for our Party’s nomination. We face huge challenges, and we need a leader who understands the economy, recognizes more government regulation is not the answer, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism and works to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to succeed.”
