House speaker endorses Mitt Romney for president


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- House Speaker John Boehner has finally endorsed Mitt Romney to be the Republican presidential nominee.

The Ohio Republican told reporters Tuesday that Romney's proposals will offer a strong contrast with what Boehner says are President Barack Obama's failed efforts to revive the economy.

Boehner says Romney's economic policies would help the unemployed find jobs. He also says he will do all he can to help Romney win in November.

Boehner said he had withheld an endorsement until now because as chairman of the Republican National Convention, to be held August 27-30 in Tampa, Florida, he wanted to make sure that all the GOP presidential contenders had a fair chance to win.
