2012: Romney At VA Roundtable

Mitt Romney is in Arlington, VA today, participating in a roundtable discussion held by the Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI), a business-funded issue advocacy group. The topic: the Employee Free Choice Act, labor-backed legislation that would allow workers to form unions with sign-up cards.

Romney has worked with WFI on the Employee Free Choice Act before, denouncing it on conference calls with media. In doing so, he has kept up his profile on the issue, which remains a top legislative priority for business this year. Romney is making a swing through Virginia this week, attending fundraising events to aid GOP candidates running in the state's election this year.
