Romney to GOP: ‘Now Honor Your Pledge’

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney talks to HUMAN EVENTS about the Republicans’ blowout victory.

With its historic gains in the House of Representatives, the biggest thing the GOP can do right now is “honor the Pledge to America,” Mitt Romney told HUMAN EVENTS.  “This election was a referendum on Obama’s agenda,” and the electorate took a decisive stand against the Democrat Party’s “excessive spending, borrowing, and growth of government.”

“Our [GOP] majority is growing,” the former Massachusetts governor went on to say, noting that House Republicans will end up with a net gain of more than 60 seats in the House, easily blowing past the 39 they needed to regain the Majority.

While many conservatives are disappointed about the losses in Nevada and West Virginia, Romney said that Republicans should highlight their victories in New England, where GOP challengers Charlie Bass and Frank Guinta beat Democratic incumbents to take House seats and where Kelly Ayotte held on to Judd Gregg’s Senate seat.

“It goes to show you that when you have strong candidates with a compelling message, Independents will get behind you,” even in a blue state like New Hampshire. Asked if the impressive GOP showing inches him closer to a 2012 presidential run, Romney said he’s “not thinking about that right now. 

“I’m basking in the delight of our historic news.”
