Barbara Bush Robo-Calls For Mitt Romney In Ohio And Vermont

Bill Pugliano/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- Former First Lady Barbara Bush recorded robo-calls for Mitt Romney in two Super Tuesday states: Ohio and Vermont.

“I’m supporting Mitt for one simple reason: America cannot survive four more years of Barack Obama, and Mitt is the man to lead America, and we need him now,” Bush says on the call, which is hitting households in both states ahead of Tuesday’s primaries.

On the call, Bush, wife of President George H.W. Bush, refers to Romney as “my friend.”

Donald Trump has also recorded an automated call for Romney, as he did in Michigan. Both of the calls were paid for by the Romney campaign.

Notably, Ann Romney has been talking up the former first lady’s support on the campaign trail. At an appearance in Georgia last week Mrs. Romney disclosed that Bush “maxed out” to the Romney campaign, writing a $2,500 check.

And in Columbus, Ohio on Friday, Mrs. Romney said Bush recently told her, “This is the most important election in my lifetime, and for a woman who was the wife of a president and the mother of a president, that’s quite astonishing.”

Ohio, where the race is tight between Romney and Rick Santorum, represents the second-largest delegate prize on Super Tuesday. Romney is expected to do well in Vermont, a state that borders two Romney strongholds—Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Here’s the Ohio script:

“Hi, this is Barbara Bush calling from Romney for President on behalf of my friend, Mitt Romney. The Ohio Republican Primary is next Tuesday, so I’m calling to remind you to vote for Mitt. I’m supporting Mitt for one simple reason:  America cannot survive four more years of Barack Obama, and Mitt is the man to lead America, and we need him now. If you have any questions, just call the Ohio campaign headquarters at 614-664-3485, or email us at TeamOH@MittRomney.com. Again don’t forget to vote for Mitt Tuesday night. Thank you for your time.”

Here’s the Vermont script:

“Hi, this is Barbara Bush calling from Romney for President on behalf of my friend, Mitt Romney.  The Vermont Republican Primary is next Tuesday, so I’m calling to remind you to vote for Mitt. I’m supporting Mitt for one simple reason:  America cannot survive four more years of Barack Obama, and Mitt is the man to lead America, and we need him now. If you have any questions, just call the Vermont campaign headquarters at (802) 242-1396, or email us at TeamVT@MittRomney.com. Again don’t forget to vote for Mitt on Tuesday. Thank you for your time. “
