The next President will make a number of appointments, and I am confident Governor Romney will nominate judges in the mold of President Bush's nominees, Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito. I am proud to work with Governor Romney and this outstanding group of legal minds."
  • Also joining the Advisory committee from Lawyers for Fred Thompson are Lizette D. Benedi, Rachel L. Brand, Reginald Brown, Charles J. Cooper, Joseph E. diGenova, Michael R. Dimino, Viet D. Dinh, Noel J. Francisco and Eileen J. O'Connor.

  • Making today's announcement, Governor Romney said, "It is an honor to have the counsel of so many distinguished men and women. Together, they represent years of experience in the legal field and their help to this campaign will be invaluable."
  • Governor Romney also announced that Victoria Toensing and Joseph diGenova will serve on the Steering Committee of Lawyers for Romney in addition to their roles on the Advisory Committee. [more here]

3 candidates in 3 months. This is why Ann Coulter thinks women shouldn't have the right to vote.

Just kidding.

Good luck with that though.

I would like to add, 3 candidates in one year. Mitt Romney was my first choice. I put a ton of effort into Mike Huckabee for 10 months. So I have not gone into anything lightly. If Fred Thompson were still in this, I would still be with him. I am still all for his conservative principles and ideas. I think it is better to look into every candidate, and if you find someone who is better, go to them. I do not follow blindly.

Thank you for your thoughts.
