New Video Shows Romney Touting Washington Funds, Ties

A new video dug up by ABC’s The Note shows ‘private sector’ Mitt Romney in 2002 touting his Washington D.C. connections, particularly his ability to attract a large amount of federal dollars and grants in Massachussetts.

“I am big believer in getting money where the money is,” Romney says on the video, “The money is in Washington.”

“I want to go after every grant, every project, every department in Washington to assure that we are taking advantage of economic development opportunities,” Romney tells the group.
