(ABC News) â€” In her first solo endorsement of the 2012 cycle, Ann Romney has backed Utah Congressional candidate Mia Love.
The Romneysâ€™ son Josh has already been vocal of his support for Love and Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Congressman, said last weekend in Utah that Josh and others there for the Romney donor retreat went to a fundraiser for Love.
â€śWomen across the country are concerned for our childrenâ€™s futures,â€ť said Ann Romney in a written statement. â€śWill our children be able to find jobs and will they be faced with burdensome debt? Miaâ€™s record of reducing spending and making government more accountable to the taxpayers should be an example for Washington. With leaders like her, we can help ensure that our children and grandchildren have bright futures.â€ť
If elected, Love, a fitness instructor and small town mayor, would become the first African American Republican woman in Congress.
