(NewsCore) - Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) has endorsed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination.
In an email to her supporters, cited by FOX News Channel, Ayotte said she had come to the decision after meeting the candidates, studying the campaign and giving the matter "a lot of thought."
The endorsement comes a year after Romney visited New Hampshire to support the former New Hampshire Attorney General's Senate campaign.
"I have put a lot of thought into this presidential primary and have been meeting with the candidates and carefully following their campaigns," Ayotte wrote. "I have been looking for a candidate that can lead our country based on our shared conservative principles and who can win.
"For me, Mitt Romney is that candidate and that is why I will be working as hard as I can to help him secure the Republican nomination and most importantly, ensure that Barack Obama is a one term president."
