Former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt: Romney's Olympic turnaround is 'exactly what we need in a president'
Mitt Romney's handling of the 2002 winter Olympics has been a source of much political discussion, and former Utah Governor Mike Leavitt wants to set the record straight.
Leavitt posted a statement praising Romney for turning the scandal-ridden games into one of the most successful ever.
"As I was governor of Utah at the time," says Leavitt, "I'm in a unique position to set the record straight."
Leavitt says Romney's budget restructuring turned the games around and dismisses Rick Santorum's suggestion that only a federal bailout saved the games as "flatly wrong." Leavitt says that Romney's Olympic success as well as his success as Governor of Massachusetts "matches almost perfectly what United States needs in our next president."
