In this recent campaign video, former Sen. Jim Talent (R-Mo.) says why he is supporting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) in the 2008 presidential race.

Talent, who is now working for Romney's campaign, says he admired what Romney accomplished in Massachusetts by "mak[ing] the government work on behalf of conservative principles for people."

"This is a man that can take the principles of our party and turn it into effective action in changing Washington," he adds, "and that's what we need right now."
