"All of the Delegates and Alternates are looking forward to being on the Primary ballot in support of Mitt Romney for President," said Rutherford. "Taking part in the process of choosing the Republican nominee and, possibly, the next President of the United States is important to our democratic process."
"As President, Mitt Romney will rebuild the foundations of the American economy on the principles of free enterprise, hard work, and innovation.
