Guam – This past Saturday Massachusetts Governor and Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s son Matt Romney spoke at Guam’s republican convention and afterwards the Guam Republican party voted to support Mitt Romney in his bid for the republican nomination for President.
This means Guam’s gop will send 9 delegates to the republican national convention in August who have pledged their support for romney.
“Biba Republican!, Biba!, Biba Republican!, Biba! Biba Republican! Biba!,” cheered the crowd. “I love your enthusiasm! That’s so great you guys are fantastic,” replied Matt Romney. U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney sent his son Matt Romney to Guam this weekend to try and garner support from Guam’s nine delegates to the Republican National Convention where the Republican party will pick their candidate for the U.S. presidential election.
“This is someone who knows how to roll up his sleeves and get the job done this is somebody who now as we look at our country we need somebody to turn this country around we need somebody to turn this economy around,” said Romney of his father adding, “There is nobody better suited no one who I trust more to go in and rescue our economy and to save our country and with that I ask your support and I thank you for being here. God Bless America.”
The trip to Guam apparently worked as Guam’s Republican Party voted to support Romney. Guam’s GOP convention is set up as a winner take all convention which means whichever candidate gets the majority of votes will get all of Guam’s nine delegates to pledge their support as well. This means that Guam’s nine delegates have pledged to vote for Romney when they attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay Florida on August 27th through the 30th. Before Guam’s Republican party voted to support Romney Republican Governor Eddie Calvo announced that he would support Romney. “From my standpoint as a citizen and as a governor it was the Romney campaign that really made that effort from the very beginning I had met representatives from Governor Romney even in the National Governor’s Association,” said Governor Calvo. This meeting allowed him to set up a phone conversation with Governor Romney. Through this conversation and through a meeting with his son Matt Romney Governor Calvo shared some of the concerns that Guam has with it’s relations to the United States. “Whether it’s Compact Impact, EITC and some of the provisions of the Clean Water Act and the Jones Act these are issues that we’d like to address and we do believe will be addressed in a Romney administration,” said Governor Calvo
The Republican National Convention happens in Tampa Bay Florida from August 27th through the 30th. Governor Calvo will also be attending the convention.
