A former Democratic aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton is throwing her support behind Mitt Romney in the presidential election, arguing Romney can offer “bipartisan leadership.”
“I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are
important to the American people,” Gigi Georges, the former Executive
Director of the New York State Democratic Party, said Saturday. “And
that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney.”
Georges, a former special assistant to President Clinton, worked on
domestic policy issues for the National Economic Council. She also
worked in Hillary Clinton’s senate office as state director.
“For most of my life, I’ve been an active Democrat,” she said.
But she argued Saturday that Obama hasn’t worked well with both Republicans and Democrats.
“That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago,” she
said. “But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just
another one he has broken. We can’t have four more years of failed
policies and two parties that can’t work together. We need the change
Mitt Romney is offering.” (Continues)
