CEA's Shapiro Endorses Romney
CEA president and CEO Gary Shapiro has endorsed Republican Mitt Romney for president, he wrote in a column published in the August issue of CEA's CE Vision magazine.
Shapiro, in the column, repeatedly cited the recent birth of his son and attendant concerns about the nation's fiscal future. He praised Romney's business experience while criticizing President Obama's approach to the business world.
Those sentiments are consistent with Shapiro's writings on politics, published in various forums, for the past three years, although he had not specifically endorsed a candidate previously. Shapiro has also said and written that he considers himself neither a Democrat or Republican.
