Treadwell endorses Romney in GOP race

JUNEAU — Alaska's lieutenant governor is endorsing Mitt Romney in the race to be the Republican Party presidential nominee.

Mead Treadwell said Wednesday that his endorsement wasn't made in his professional capacity. In a statement he said the nation needs a leader like Romney, a former Massachusetts governor whom he says has a "record of results." Treadwell said that as governor, Romney created thousands of jobs, balanced the state's budget and cut taxes.

Treadwell's endorsement was announced in a release from the Romney campaign.

Treadwell is the highest profile state official in Alaska thus far to offer an endorsement in the GOP presidential race.
