Terry Sullivan: ‘Governor Romney in first place, tied with Rudy Giuliani’

July 13, 2007

Dear Friends,

We’ve got a lot of good news to report, so let’s get right to it!

First of all, Governor Romney’s momentum shows no sign of slowing down, as a National Journal poll of Senators, Congressmen and political professionals put Governor Romney in first place, tied with Rudy Giuliani, as the most likely candidate to win the GOP nomination!  You can read about the poll by clicking here.

This isn’t the first time that Governor Romney’s impressive grassroots support and fundraising has raised eyebrows – over the last few weeks, Scott Reed, Bob Dole’s ’96 campaign manager, said “I really think Romney is the front-runner” and Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza named Governor Romney the leading contender for the nomination.

Next in the news, Governor Romney’s fundraising totals for the 2nd Quarter were released last week.  It was a fantastic effort that resulted in a total of $43.9 million dollars for this year, including the Governor’s personal financial commitment to the campaign.  That’s more than any other GOP contender!  One number stood out to me even more than the dollar totals:  80,000 different people made the decision to invest their hard earned money in Governor Romney’s vision of conservative change.  To each of you who made that commitment, thank you very much!

Finally, I have some very exciting news to report!  Ann Romney, Governor Romney’s wife of 38 years, will be launching her first-ever bus tour right here in South Carolina!  She will be making stops all across the state next week, so be sure to keep an eye out for her in Greenville, Columbia, Charleston, Hilton Head and everywhere in-between.

Ann Romney is also the star of a new radio ad called “Ann on Family” where she talks about her devotion to her family and what it was like raising five sons.  You can listen to the spot by clicking here.

That’s it for this week – please remember to sign up for TEAM MITT and spread the word about Governor Romney’s message of conservative change across South Carolina!
