Romney gets backing from 16 RNC members
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- As the Republican National Committee meets this week in the nation's capital, former Massachusetts governor and likely GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced that 16 RNC committee members are joining his presidential exploratory committee.
"In our Party and in their respective states, these men and women will be tireless advocates for our common ideals of lowering taxes, curbing runaway spending, promoting traditional values, and providing for a strong national defense," Romney said in a statement Wednesday. "In just two weeks, we have put together a strong team united by an optimistic vision for the future and motivated to go forward."
