Romney impersonator Mike Cote is hanging his hopes on the outcome of the November 2012 presidential elections and wishes for a Republican victory in pursuit of a healthy career.
'If Romney wins the presidency, I might have a new career,' Cote told in an interview.
57-year-old Cote has facial features that strongly remind you of those of the Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, especially when improved with makeup.

The Romney doppelganger who is also an aspiring comedian has by now taken advantage of his looks, starring in former Republican candidate Rick Santorum's 'Rombo' ad that appeared during the primaries.
Check out the video:
Cote, most recently appeared on the cover of The Atlantic magazine, infighting President Obama’s impersonator in a boxing match.
Cote is represented by Dustin Gold, a Washington-based talent agent who has a number of political lookalikes in his account, including the original Bill Clinton impersonator.
Cote has been working on his stiff Romney walk, straight-armed wave and typical smirking, but has been incapable of capturing the former Massachusetts governor's accent properly. When he is not wearing makeup his similarity to Romney is not as apparent, but he says that he looks like the original enough to get stopped on the street.
57-year-old comedian was scheduled to appear at events in Boca Raton, Florida, during last week's presidential debate, but the plans fell through in the last minute. He has already made 20 appearances as Romney, including on Fox News and in a staged fight with an Obama lookalike in New York City.
