Barbara Bush records robo-calls for Mitt Romney in Ohio, Vermont

CINCINNATI -- Donald Trump isn't the only surrogate making robo-calls to Ohio voters on behalf of Mitt Romney. Barbara Bush is as well.

The former first lady has recorded a message for automated calls to Ohio voters urging them to support Romney in Tuesday's Republican presidential primary. Two decades after she and her husband, George, left the White House, top Republicans here say, Bush maintains a strong following among GOP voters.

Bush has also recorded robo-calls on Romney's behalf targeting voters in Vermont.

The script, according to the Romney campaign, is as follows. Bush also recorded a similar message for voters in Vermont, which also holds a primary on Tuesday.

Hi, this is Barbara Bush calling from Romney for President on behalf of my friend, Mitt Romney.
The Ohio Republican Primary is next Tuesday, so I'm calling to remind you to vote for Mitt.
I'm supporting Mitt for one simple reason:  America cannot survive four more years of Barack Obama, and Mitt is the man to lead America, and we need him now.
If you have any questions, just call the Ohio campaign headquarters at 614-664-3485, or email us at TeamOH@MittRomney.com.
Again don't forget to vote for Mitt Tuesday night. Thank you for your time.
This call was paid for by Romney for President, Inc.
