Point Mitt Romney winning six Super Tuesday states here in reaction now is one time.
Presidential candidate himself George Pataki the former governor of new York and good morning -- you go and good morning you don't have yet to endorse in this republic irritation fight.
Until now what -- Well I think it's time for Republicans to rally around our nominee -- this president has been running a general election strategy for year what we've been mired in the trenches.
Shooting at each other and and has to stop I think Mitt showed last night.
He has the breadth of support that warrants -- supporting him rallying around him and I am endorsing it.
Let me say Newt Gingrich Rick Santorum Ron Paul of run great campaigns.
But it's time the focus on the greater good and the greater good is turning our sights on winning the general election defeating President Obama.
We cannot let this continue until August -- passed the stop I think now it's time -- on the on a personal level have you been thinking about this.
Either in the back your mind and are going public with that.
Or has something fundamentally change in this election well I have been thinking about it and and I don't think any anything it's fundamentally changed and that's what worries me.
It's time we have to change things and focus on the general.
We are still bogged down shooting at each other it's and the president is looking presidential.
I mean gasoline prices are something that should be in the midst of every single political dialogue and yet our people are.
Talking about other issues and I think it's time to rally around the presumptive nominee.
-- it is not a perfect candidate.
He has a number of problems -- it's hard for him -- for blue collar families like mine to identify with them it's hard for economic conservatives to identify with them.
He needs to do more to reach out to the Latinos.
But I think he has the focus is a focus on that -- on defeating President Obama as opposed to winning the next primary and the the next state.
You know he's trying to do quite well if you get your way -- Mitt Romney is the nominee.
How does a one on one contest between Romney -- Obama -- I think I think people understand this country's headed in the wrong direction and I think governor Romney has an excellent opportunity to point out.
A different philosophy of how he would lead this country you know Martha just talked about job results that may be -- coming back.
-- little bit but we have never had sustained unemployment over 8% and we have now for more than two years in this president's economic policies have failed.
We he has spent -- off a cliff sixteen trillion in debt we and if you look at his proposed budgets.
Trillions more every year as far as the eye can see you can't sustain that so I think governor Romney.
Has an excellent opportunity to point -- -- could change the direction of this country.
Give people more confidence and optimism and our future so this the morning after Super Tuesday you're endorsing Mitt Romney yes I am as the Republicans -- -- understanding you know that he has things he has to do.
To reach out to blue collar families and to Latinos and to put in place a real economic conservative program -- people can say yes this will work what we we've spoken about every week for months now.
That's -- you've never gone this far now I have always hesitant.
It just bothers me enormously not so much as a Republican but as an American.
To see a president who I think has made wrong decision -- the wrong decision being able to pretend to be above the fray.
Well -- minions are out there taking shots at our candidates we need to be able to focus on shooting back at President Obama.
That's the greater good winning the election this November.
As I said -- and Rick and Ron Paul a front excellent campaigns but let's look at the future of this country and not just the future next State's primary and that means we need to get behind Mitt Romney we're gonna bring -- the Romney campaign in the -- -- -- -- reaction how -- -- digesting all the numbers from last night where they go next -- we'll put this question to them as well.
Governor George Pataki former governor of the empire state now on board with Mitt Romney.
-- -- thank you very much Bill --
