How important is Virginia as a battleground state in this election cycle.
I think most would say it's probably the top five -- state we are truly purple last.
Ten cycles we've had five Republican governors five democratic governors and but I do think it's a right of -- -- the independent voters are particularly lean conservative.
In 2000 -- president ran a great campaign lots of soaring rhetoric about hope and change course now it's recession and divisions look that messages -- into.
And I think the last couple cycles Republicans have made big gains I won by eighteen picked up new congressional seats up.
I think it's an important battleground -- is hard to imagine any real clear path to victory for Republican without winning Virginia how confident are you that you can return it back to -- Republican column.
Well it will -- for lack of effort consider it we are working very.
-- hard we've got a good organization.
Around the state people are motivated to go to -- -- right now we're.
We just finished the intra family battle for the Republican nomination Mitt Romney is clearly.
Now the nominee so we have a period of coalescing now around the -- mr.
abundantly here today to -- Support and then I think once it becomes Mitt Romney's vision against Rocco -- Obama's record.
Horrible record on job creation eight point 2% or above unemployment rate for 39 months unacceptable we can do better in that.
-- fifteen trillion dollars in -- he's added five trillion.
Two at the largest debt in American history unacceptable -- sustainable for future.
I think -- of the issues here we're gonna vote on and the more we get to the independent voters what Mitt Romney is gonna do about it -- -- we do.
We know -- the presidential nominee is we don't know who is running native seated there you're name is on the short list up.
If you're -- will you accept the job and in what would you bring to the ticket.
Well you know that's not for me to decide that round is -- that it is only his list that really matters I got the job held by Thomas Jefferson Patrick Henry governor of Virginia don't get any better -- And Italy we need to have a change in the leadership for this nation.
To make the greatest country on earth more solvent.
And more economically -- prosperous monitor everything I can't help out and beyond that it's all speculation knowledge year old envisioned because it's -- to -- round.
The -- quickly.
Here in this state you've -- four billion dollar budget shortfall.
To zero get a raise taxes and unemployment at five point 6% that's a pretty remarkable record is what you've done here in Virginia.
Perhaps a road map -- a blueprint for -- it governor Romney could do as president.
I think absolutely we see Republican governors across the country doing that in Florida and Louisiana and Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Taken the same things just looking at the people of their -- in Saint -- who can afford -- -- -- when the bills are -- We've got available to streamline government set priorities and make job -- economic development and support of the private sector the tougher.
We did that and and it's worked -- billion dollars in -- the lowest unemployment rate in three years lost in the southeast.
It's a it's a winning formula in Mitt Romney not only understands the American dream but he he's lived.
