A Romney- Rubio GOP Ticket Would be Devastating for Obama-Biden

Mitt Romney’s incredible organizational skills have made all the difference in  this campaign season. These skills have kept him at the top of the field in the GOP Presidential race.  None of the other candidates have the same built-in  political infrastructure in the remaining states to surmount Romney’s lead in delegates. None of the remaining GOP candidates can match Romney’s financial firepower, the mother’s milk of politics, as the race heads towards delegate rich states.

Fresh off his impressive win in Illinois, Mitt  Romney is counting delegates and taking names…for Vice  President.

Knowing  Mitt Romney is a planner and strategist of great  accomplishment, it would be impossible to think that he hasn’t  thought of  who he would select as a running mate if he secures the GOP nomination. In fact, I would suspect he has already thoroughly vetted who his choices would be,  since an accomplished businessman-Governor  knows that preparation and perspiration are keys to success.

Of course there is still a long way to go and you can never count anyone out in politics, but it doesn’t hurt to speculate. The recurring name that keeps surfacing for the Vice Presidential position is Senator Marco Rubio.

Senator Rubio is a hugely  popular rising star in the GOP. He swept his way into office as a straight spoken, principled candidate, who is a favorite of the Tea Party and appeals to millions around the country regardless of party affiliation. His appeal as a youthful  face for the GOP would be a draw for millions of younger voters who can identify with him. Not only would Senator Rubio, by virtue of his  personality and charisma, add a huge new dimension to the Romney ticket, it would  deliver the all important state of Florida.

He also knows what the  tyranny of communist regimes bring, both his folks are Cuban Americans, so he  has a great appreciation for what America stood for.  He is a Catholic and an American of Cuban descent with massive appeal to the millions of Hispanic voters who will play a key roll in the upcoming Presidential  campaign.

After three years of President Obama’s leadership, the nation is  struggling and people are looking for change. Governor Romney’s great experience in the private sector, as well as his experience leading a state as its chief  executive, will put him in a unique position to turn the country around and make it into the job creating juggernaut that it can be.

If Governor  Romney secures the GOP Presidential position, the most devastating choice he can make for the Obama campaign will be Senator Rubio.  Articulate, principled and honest, he is able to speak extemporaneously, without  the need for a teleprompter. He could easily carry the message to all 50 states.

I agree, the nation is looking for change. I just don’t equate Romney with change. There are still more than 20 states that have not had the opportunity to voice their choice.
Let’s give everyone a chance to Vote for all candidates.
More Importantly……….
If Santorum and Gingrich resign from the campaign many voters will not bother going to the polls.
As a former election board employee I want you to know if you cut down on candidates you cut the voter turnout. As a consequence the other candidates for Senate and Congress will not get the attention they deserve

These states have yet to vote and could change the outcome .
Maryland, Washington DC, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, , North Carolina, West Virginia, Oregon, Arkansas, Kentucky, Texas, Louisiana, Washington, California, New Jersey, New Mexico, South Dakota, , and Utah.
