Romney Speaks at CEA Event
Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney appeared Friday at a breakfast event jointly hosted by the Consumer Electronics Association and Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC).
Romney, CEA said, "spoke to the need for an economic and governmental climate that supports and promotes innovation."
"Governor Romney's vision for American competitiveness and a culture of innovation reflect that of CEA's own Innovation Movement," CEA president and CEO Gary Shapiro said in a statement. "Technology and innovation, and their role in spurring the nation's economic growth, will be important issues in the 2012 presidential election, and today we heard from one candidate who understands what entrepreneurs and businesses need."
