Harold Hamm knows a thing or two about business. One thing he knows: President Obama is bad for the economy and bad for the energy industry.
Sometimes, a little knowledge is an enlightening thing. What the governors know and what Hamm knows point to the wisdom of nominating Mitt Romney to take on Obama.
State leaders interviewed at a National Governors Association meeting last month said the economy will be the key issue in the fall. This includes Republican governors whose views on social policy are perhaps more aligned with Rick Santorum than Romney. The governors believe the November winner will represent the party with the better plan to create jobs.
Hamm, the son of a sharecropper, prefers Romney, the son of a Republican governor. Hamm, CEO of Continental Resources, is chairman of Romney's Energy Policy Advisory Group. “I have never gotten involved in presidential politics before,” Hamm said. “But today, I am deeply worried about the future of our country.”
