John Thune is set to endorse Mitt Romney this morning in Iowa.
“Mitt Romney has shown throughout his life in the private sector, as leader of the Olympics, as governor and in this campaign that he will not back down from difficult challenges,” Thune said in a statement. “Washington could use these common sense principles at such a critical time.”
Thune, the chairman of the Senate’s Republican Policy Committee, and Romney are set to speak at an event in Iowa at 10 a.m. Wednesday, and then co-host a town hall in the afternoon according to the Sioux City Journal.
?I am honored to have Senator Thune?s support,? Romney said. ?On the issues that I have been fighting for in my campaign ? creating a better business environment, lessening the regulatory burden, and ending Washington?s spending addiction ? Senator Thune has been a leading voice in the Senate. He will be a trusted adviser as I bring this message to voters, work to reverse President Obama?s failed policies, and reform Washington.?
