Romney Highlights Private Sector Experience
Presidential contender Mitt Romney highlighted his history in the private sector as the main reason he is a viable candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, reports The Hill
“I’m not going to need a primer on the economy if I’m lucky enough to be elected president,” he said during a New Hampshire town hall.
Romney had a similar response during the GOP presidential debate in Ames, Iowa Thursday, arguing “Herman Cain and I are the two on the stage here who’ve actually worked in the real economy . . . If people want to send to Washington someone who spent their entire career in government, they can choose a lot of folks. But if they want to choose somebody who understands how the private sector works, they’re going to have to choose one of us, because we’ve been in it during our career.”
