Today, U.S. Congressman Wally Herger (R-CA) announced that he is endorsing Governor Mitt Romney for President of the United States. He joins Congressmen Howard "Buck" McKeon and John Campbell in supporting Governor Romney.

Announcing his support for Governor Romney, Congressman Herger said, "Governor Romney has the experience, vision and values to lead our country and meet a new generation of challenges. Throughout this campaign, he has distinguished himself as the only candidate who has outlined the vision and the policies that will keep us safe and build a stronger America. I am proud to make today's announcement and look forward to campaigning for him throughout the coming months."

Welcoming Congressman Herger to Romney for President, Governor Romney said, "Today's announcement is another indication of our growing support in California. Congressman Herger has been a strong leader for our conservative values in Washington. He has never forgotten that an elected official's most solemn obligation is to fight for the people they represent. Throughout his time in the Congress, he has advocated for a stronger economy, smaller government and a lower tax burden. I look forward to working with Congressman Herger and visiting California often."
