Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney today announced that several Maine Republicans have endorsed his candidacy.

Among those on the list are Attorney General William Schneider; Peter Cianchette, a former gubernatorial candidate and state legislator; former U.S. Rep. David Emery and Senate Majority Leader Jonathan Courtney, R-Sanford.

In a statement, Schneider said: “He has spent his life turning failing businesses, including the 2002 Winter Olympics, into successful enterprises, and as governor, he balanced the budget without raising taxes.”
