EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Mitt Romney stumped for tea party Senate candidate Richard Mourdock here on Saturday, arguing that as president he will need such supporters in Washington to help him enact policies to restore fiscal order.
“You know, we’ve got to get this guy elected in the U.S. Senate, you know that. He has proven as the treasurer that he knows how to he makes sure to balance books. He’s also proven as a campaigner that he can take his message to the people of Indiana, they’ll support him. This is a man that I want to see in Washington to make sure that we cannot just talk about changing things but actually have the votes to get things change,” Romney told about 100 supporters gathered in Stepto’s Bar-B-Q Shack. “Will you help me elect this guy as the next U.S. senator?”
The nation’s capital needs people such as Mourdock who understand that the nation cannot continue deficit spending, Romney said.
“You can’t keep spending massively more than you take in without putting America in peril. And so a treasurer knows that, a governor knows that. It seems that everybody in America knows that in their households, businesses know it, families know it. There’s only one place in America that doesn’t seem to understand that you can’t keep spending massively more than you take in every year, and that’s Washington,” Romney said. “And one reason we’re both going there is to change Washington and to make sure that we finally get ourselves on track to a balanced budget.”
Mourdock introduced Romney, noting he had done so four years ago when Romney came to Indiana stumping
