Michigan Rep. McCotter drops, throws support to Romney

U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, a Michigan Republican, is bidding farewell to the national campaign trail while handing his support to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

McCotter told The Detriot News Thursday afternoon that was abandoning his bid for the White House in 2012, and will likely seek reelection to his current seat in Congress.

Like several of the lesser-known candidates, McCotter had a difficult time garnering national attention.

“The great irony at work — especially with the Reagan Library debate — is going to be the fact that two frontrunners weren’t even Republicans during the Reagan administration, whereas people like myself at the age of 21 were,” McCotter said during an appearance on Fox Business earlier this month while discussing his exclusion from a presidential debate in California.

As The Iowa Independent previously noted, his Hawkeye State stump speech was “like a feature-length drama — full of danger about the future, with GOP activists cast as the protagonists that must rise up against all odds and save the entire world.”

McCotter believes that government cannot just be cut or shrunk, but that it — and especially entitlement programs and regulatory agencies — must be “restructured for the 21st century.” He says that Republicans understand the fallacy of the “welfare state” is the temptation of false security that takes a person capable of “the dignity of self-reliance” and makes that person dependent upon government.

While not the most flashy of the 2012ers, he was the candidate that seemed to give rally and dinner attendees pause — pull them down into a world of nearly insurmountable perceived threats to family and security before rallying them with his honest perception that they, Republican activists, were the only ones prepared enough to save the nation.

“He’s really witty” or “he made me think” were common remarks heard from those who heard his speak.

There is no word yet from the Romney campaign regarding McCotter’s endorsement, but it isn’t likely to come as a complete surprise to Iowans. McCotter’s chief supporter in the Hawkeye State was former state Rep. Christopher Rants, who supported Romney in 2008. There’s no word yet from Rants on whether he will once again support Romney.
