"Governor Romney has built acoalition of grassroots conservative support in. New Hampshire and across the country as aresult of his advocacy for economic, social and national security policies thatchampion conservative Republican ideals.
"We, of course, respect theUnion-Leader's right to voice their opinion, but the differences betweenGovernor Romney and Senator McCain are clear. We disagree with Senator McCain'sjoining Democrats to vote against Republican plans for tax relief, hispro-amnesty immigration proposal with Senator Kennedy and his McCain-Feingoldlegislation which hurt conservative advocacy efforts."
