Five Members of Romney Family Endorse Ron Paul for President; Three to Speak at Idaho Caucus Sites

Mitt Romney

2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul was endorsed today by several members of the Romney family, indeed those related to fellow Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Ty Romney is an attorney handling property and liability claims for State Farm Mutual in Great Falls, Montana and received his Bachelors of Arts Degree from the University of Utah and his Juris Doctorate Degree from Seattle University School of Law. He is an active member of the Idaho State Bar Association.

Ty said, “Ron Paul is honest. It’s time to take a stand for honesty. It doesn’t matter whether the truth is popular or not, I know that Ron Paul will always maintain a true principle and I endorse that degree of integrity.”

Travis Romney is a chiropractor based in Spokane, Washington, and will be speaking at the Greyhound Park caucus location in Kootenai County. With his dad a second cousin to Mitt Romney, Travis is a second cousin once removed.

“I support Ron Paul because he defends the Constitution, loves America and understands what it means to be an American, including the right to live your life any way you want as long as you respect others,” said Travis. He continued, “I love his foreign policy of maintaining peace and trade while making a strong national defense a top priority, and that you only go to war legally through a declaration by the people through their elected representatives.”

Also sharing common ancestry, Chad Romney resides in the Boise area and will be speaking at the Glenns Ferry caucus location in Elmore County.

Jared Romney, out of Salt Lake City, said his grandfather is a first cousin with former Michigan Governor George Romney, the father of Mitt Romney, and stated, “It really comes down to Ron Paul championing the ideas of the Constitution, in how he lives it, understanding we must return to and follow its guiding principles. He also understands we must reign in the Federal Reserve System which is destroying our economy.”

Troy Romney also lives in Salt Lake City and is a University of Utah student, and will be speaking at the Montpelier caucus location in Bear Lake County. Troy’s grandfather and George Romney are cousins as well. Troy said he supports Ron Paul because “he stands for the values and principles America was founded upon.”

These family member endorsements are preceded by an announcement of support for Ron Paul by Rick Santorum’s nephew, John Garver.

Concerning the active “Latter-day Saints for Ron Paul” coalition, this announcement follows the high-profile endorsements of President Jonathan Johnson, prominent author and chair of the Utah Tenth Amendment Center Connor Boyack, and that of Utah Republican Liberty Caucus Chair Darcy Van Orden.

All such announcements help present Ron Paul as the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney and demonstrate that no presidential candidate has a monopoly on this crucial western states voter segment or even, for that matter, the Romney family.

As a function of this announcement, the above-mentioned persons now are members of the “Latter-day Saints for Ron Paul” nationwide coalition.

As a first basic step, those wanting to join the active “Latter-day Saints for Ron Paul” nationwide coalition should complete the Idaho state coalition sign-up form visit the official national coalition web page by clicking here.

    It is great to see this and it really just reminds us of what we already knew, regardless of who your family is, and what they stand for, not one of us has to agree. Think of your own family and how many of them you do not share the same ideals and belief system with. I think the most important message here is that no matter what the media will have us think, Ron Paul is great enough to reach out and connect on the deepest levels with millions of us. Our family, our religion, our way of life is not enough to stand in the way of the most basic and important part of our life, the foundation of what we are. Freedom and liberty. That is why Ron Paul should be president.

  • Dayna

    Just curious – why does it matter if he knows, or is close to, the family members who are supporting Paul? I think the point is being missed … that someone from the Romney tree is supporting Paul.

    If I were running for president and my second cousins (who I know by name, mostly; a few are close but some I’m like, oh yeah, those guys in Texas) were publicly voting against me, I think I would be pretty hurt. Just sayin’.

    Obama’s family would probably endorse him if anyone knew who they were.

    A Negro Standing For Ron Paul 2012

  • Glen

    Ron Paul won me over the first time I saw him debate in 07. I would take a bullet for that man. I have a 2 year old boy that I am going to watch grow up in a free country no matter how many asses I have to kick to see that happen. There are 2 ways to achieve that. Elect Ron Paul or Grab a rifle and revolt. Let’s try option #1 first but not rule out option #2 if it becomes necessary. I am voting Ron Paul GOP or 3rd Party. I will throw the GOP under a bus in a heartbeat if they try and screw him over. NO ONE BUT PAUL 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!…….and his VP Andrew Napolitano!!

    • Bmac6446

      I would rather see the Judge as Attorney General where his talents would get put to good use. VP doesn’t do very much.

  • As a very enthusiastic supporter of Ron Paul, can we please leave this kind of shit to the plastic candidates?

  • Michael

    First of all, when you have second cousins of Willard Mutt Romney, that is close enough to call it “family” and I live in Los Angeles, my cousins live in South Carolina, my brothers and sisters live in Michigan and my other brother tours every state–just because they are all over hell (or over in Iraq) does NOT make them any less family, so whoever is using that as an excuse to discredit this story is using pure ignorance. Just because I am not best friends with all the people I don’t even know that show up to our family reunions does not mean they are not still family.

    Ron Paul has Santorum and Romney family supporting him now–if Gingrich didn’t eat his entire bloodline and 46 ex-wives, then we would have his family as supporters too. I also believe that all of Kenya has flip-flopped on Obama (as I too have) and are now “pulling for Paul” (not to be confused as something men do to counter the women that are “Pimpin for Paul)–I actually mean they are “rooting” for him–although I have been accused of pulling for Paul more than once.

    The bottom line is that I am a hilarious satire writer and in tune with my political self. The veil has been lifted and my head has been cleanly jerked from my ass and I do not live, anymore, where most of the world does. That is not to say that I look down on or think that I am better than them, I just have to learn to slowly lead them to Paul instead of gang raping and water-boarding them into it.

    Do it the Paul way–it is exactly like the “John C. Maxwell way” and nobody is better in leadership than he. Paul models that leadership and exemplifies a TRUE (pun intended) leader of men.

    Come on folks, get your Ron Paul comments on this video and vote thumbs up with your brothers and sisters to help send the RP message!
    DO IT NOW 😀

  • MadPepperJack

    Ok, I’ll just be perfectly blunt with you all this time around. This article is a sham. How about before you go for that little red thumbs down button JUST because it appears to be the slightest bit against Ron Paul, you stop and think about it for a moment.

    If you are Romney’s second cousin’s (once removed) son, who lives on the other side of the country, doesn’t that seem like quite a stretch to you? How about Romney’s cousin’s grandson all the way in Utah? What are the odds that you even know him well?

    Look. I’m a diehard Ron Paul supporter, and sure, it’s always nice to hear other people supporting Paul. But if you really aren’t a “Paultard” or a “Paulbot” and want to prove you are intelligent, you should realize the material of this story is the same sensational-grade bullshit that the media likes to run (only they use it to smear Paul instead). At the very least, the title and opening remarks are misleading. Five, out of potentially dozens and dozens of distantly related family members, is not all that impressive, when you think about it…

  • keith

    If Romney were a member of my family I would still support Ron Paul. I imagine most of the Gingrich and Santorum families feel much the same.

  • Sam

    certainly, Ron Paul should be president, because he is the only solution for USA and he is the best solution.

  • MB

    This article is self – destructive if posted by the support of the Ron Paul movement .We all have extended family who we havn’t met, yes even Mitt Romney- To be honest it’s not one would expect from the Paul supporters and it’s about as relevant as the quote from the movie Spaceballs below:

    Think before you post things people

    • Jack

      That’s a valid point, however, you have to take in consideration this is POLITICS and things like these can be used in favor of whoever is playing the game, do you think politicians in campaing like to kiss babies and shake hands?, some might, but the rest know that’s “part of the game” and they use it until they get elected, after that, they won’t even answer your calls or reply to your emails.

  • Noel Bartholomew

    At first glance it looks like Romney chances of being president are slipping away because Romney’s relatives are endorses Ron Paul. However, I’m still a bit skeptical…. I think there is a motive of Romney’s Family endorsing Ron Paul. What do you guys think? Maybe Ron Paul for Vice President?

  • MadPepperJack

    And Mitt Romney’s father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate said:

    Ron Paul looks too frail; I support Santorum. He looks like an upstanding Christian boy who will save America’s soul and bring judgment down upon bloodthirsty heathen Muslims that want to murder us all because we are so awesome.”

    Damn it. I thought we had something going here.

  • Geoff Charters

    I forgot to mention santorum’s nephew endorsing Dr. Paul. What a hoot. Who’s next to endorse him, Obama’s family??!!!

  • Geoff Charters

    When Ron Paul gets endorsed by romney’s family, you know he’s the man for the job. But what a kick in the ass for Romney. How will he explain this away, his own family know he’s a liar and a clear wannabee, but even the family knows he isn’t President material. You gotta love it!!!

  • John

    It’s good to see there are Romney family members that are not close minded and blind. Mitt Romney can’t even give this man a straight answer
    Smoking a cigarette is harmful and deadly. Alcohol is harmful and deadly. Marijuana has not been linked to any deaths. so why are cigarettes and alcohol legal while alcohol is not?
    Sorry to get off topic. Mitt Romney just pisses me off so much. Like in this video, the veteran is right and Mitt is an idiot for not listening to him.
    Rick Santorum also scares me because he wants the federal government to be in control of everything!

  • Bob Porrazzo

    Well Willard looks like some of your family members just got wise!

  • mark jones

    i like this. i like this a lot.

  • Jack

    That’s the Ron Paul way, he wins supporters slowly, one by one without fanfare, just with the plain truth and clear message.

    Let’s hope the rest of the american people open their eyes and join us to bring this beautiful country of ours back to where it belongs, the symbol of Liberty, Prosperity and Freedom.

      Mitt Romney = Judas Goat

      If not aware of this olden days’ meaning — here it is:

      When sheep are led to be slaughtered, they instinctively feel something is wrong. So, mill around and bleat, but won’t enter the gate leading to the one waiting to smash their heads with a sledge hammer. So, a Judas goat is placed in the pen. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them through the gate, and passing it safely — while its own life is spared, the ones flowing get their brains bashed!!

      Mitt will lead us — and at the end of the gate, Bama will wield the sledge hammer….
