MONTPELIER — Mitt Romney is engaged in a fierce battle for the Republican presidential nomination, and GOP officials from Vermont and New Hampshire will make the case for Mitt during a Statehouse press conference Wednesday.
Sen. Randy Brock, who is running for Vermont governor, and Sen. Vince Illuzzi will join former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu in the Cedar Creek Room “to discuss Mitt Romney’s bold vision to turn around our economy.”
Vermont is already Mitt-friendly state, according to a poll released this week by the newly launched Castleton Polling Institute.
According to the poll, Romney is the top choice for 34 percent of likely voters in the Republican primary, followed by Santorum, with 27 percent. With 14 percent of the vote Paul came in a distant third, and Gingrich trailed the pack with 10 percent.
But Vermonters still love Barack. According to the poll, Obama still leads Romney by 26 points in a head-to-head match up.
CORRECTION: In an earlier version of this post, the headline suggested Sununu was the current governor of New Hampshire.
