One of Mitt Romney's highest-profile backers, Donald Trump, will be recording robo-calls on behalf of Romney for every state, a spokesman for the real estate tycoon said on Thursday.
Trump has previously recorded the messages in early-primary states of Ohio and Michigan, but Trump spokesman Michael Cohen said, "Citizens of all states should expect a phone call from Mr. Trump endorsing Mitt Romney." The Romney campaign would not confirm the ads would run in every state.
Cohen would not say when the calls would begin, but said they would first be heard in forthcoming major primary states. Kansas, Alabama, Hawaii, and Mississippi all vote within the next week.
Trump endorsed Romney on Feb. 2 in Las Vegas. At Romney's Super Tuesday celebration in Boston on Tuesday night, Ann Romney thanked him for his support of her husband's campaign.
"Mr. Trump has blitzed the radio airwaves and recorded calls for us in to various states—we appreciate everything he has done so far, and has pledged to continue to do, to help Mitt Romney get elected the next president of the United States," Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said.
The calls were first reported by ABC News.
