Nan Hayworth Endorses Mitt Romney

The Mitt Romney for president press shop has been rolling out endorsements for the former Massachusetts  governor at a steady clip, and this afternoon’s edition is Hudson Valley Congresswoman Nan Hayworth.

“14 million Americans need jobs,” said Ms. Hayworth. “That’s why we have to fix our economy.  Mitt Romney has proven as a governor and as a business leader that he can turn around tough situations and make things work.  I have complete confidence in his ability to balance the federal budget, make the government efficient and effective, and ensure that all Americans have the opportunity they deserve and the prosperity they need. Mitt Romney is the right person to get us back to work, and he will make an outstanding president.”

Ms. Hayworth represents part of a growing consensus among New York Republicans behind Mr. Romney.  Earlier this year, her fellow freshman Michael Grimm endorsed Mr. Romney, following the lead of his mentor–and former holder of Mr. Grimm’s Staten Island seat–Guy Molinari

Mr. Grimm received something of a backlash among Tea Party Republicans on Staten Island, who felt that he was forgoing the core supporters who propelled him to victory. The Tea Party never supported Ms. Hayworth in quite the same way, but State Sen. Greg Ball, a Tea Party favorite, has been making noises about a primary run.

If that were the case, it seems fair to assume that she would have Gov. Romney’s support.

“Congresswoman Hayworth has prioritized creating jobs and getting government spending under control, Mr. Romney said. “I hope, as president, to work with Nan to ensure that our children and grandchildren will not be the ones to shoulder trillions of dollars in debt they had no part in creating.”
