I am proud to announce my Puerto Rico Campaign Committee,” said Mitt Romney. “Around the world, the United States has helped plant the seeds of democracy. Meanwhile, close to four million American citizens in Puerto Rico do not enjoy the same rights and privileges of democracy as their other fellow citizens. In Washington today, a lack of leadership in the White House is paralyzing significant progress on too many issues. As president, I will provide the leadership and resources necessary to ensure that this century-old question is resolved. As I’ve said in the past, by working with Congress, we can grant Puerto Ricans the opportunity to determine their future political status. Only in this way can we close the book on Puerto Rico’s political limbo and one of the great unresolved questions of American democracy.”

Announcing her support, Republican National Committeewoman Zoraida Fonalledas said, “Puerto Rican voters are looking for the candidate who is ready to turn around our struggling economy – as a businessman and governor, Mitt Romney was able to do just that. Of all the candidates, he has the most experience working in the real economy. That experience will be needed in our next president to grow the economy and create jobs.”
