Hillary Clinton's former Senate state director, Gigi George, is backing Mitt Romney for President in 2012, citing bipartisan leadership.
“For most of my life, I’ve been an active Democrat. I am proud to have worked for President Bill Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton, and, during that time, I saw firsthand what can be accomplished by strong, bipartisan leadership. I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are important to the American people. And that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney. Governor Romney has a plan to restore the prosperity this country deserves and expects. He will work with people of good will no matter what their party, and he will pursue the policies that are in the best interest of our country, no matter who proposes them. That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago. But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just another one he has broken. We can’t have four more years of failed policies and two parties that can’t work together. We need the change Mitt Romney is offering.”
Ms. George is not alone as a recent Associated Press-GfK poll asked respondents who they thought would be able to fix the gridlock seen in Washington over the last two years and Romney holds a 10 point advantage over Obama in voter's minds, 47 percent to 37 percent.
Harry Reid has preemptively threatened voters with more gridlock by stating he and Senate Democrats will not work with Mitt Romney if he is reelected. Republicans must take control of the Senate as well as Romney winning the presidency.
