Mitt Romney's PAC Endorses Ruth McClung

PHOENIX, AZ. OCTOBER 12, 2010 - Mitt Romney's Free and Strong America PAC announced the endorsement of Ruth McClung for Arizona's Congressional District 7 race against Congressman Raul Grijalva.

McClung has been interested in politics since she was teenager, when in Idaho her father served as a Republican County Chairman. She helped out in campaigns, volunteered in the Republican headquarters, helped in special county events, and was acquainted with many of the politicians. Her interest in serving her community through politics has grown through the years, and has led her to run for office.

"I am humbled to have received Governor Romney's endorsement. Governor Romney believes in strengthening our economy, military, and families," McClung said. "Those beliefs as well as hard work were instilled upon me at an early age and I hope to show Southern Arizona my commitment to them at a national level."

McClung wants to use her science background to help the people of Southern Arizona, and the United States by serving in the U.S. Congress. Ruth's educational and work background gives her an advantage over most candidates. She understands the science behind some very important issues such as energy, the environment, technology, defense, and national security. McClung understands the need for defense and the types of technologies that are needed to make us safer. She also understands where potential waste in the defense industry might be.

Mitt Romney's Free and Strong America PAC is sending McClung $2,500 in support toward her Congressional campaign. "At a time when too many of our elected officials are more interested in growing the size of government than growing our economy, we need leaders who will put the interests of the people ahead of special interests. Ruth is committed to turning our troubled economy around, and her educational and professional background as a physicist gives her a unique perspective on many of the most challenging issues facing our nation. I look forward to the contributions she will make in Congress, and I am proud to stand with her today," said Romney.
