Mitt Romney still has no position on whether the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act should have passed, his campaign confirmed to TPM. CBS News cited an unnamed adviser on Thursday who suggested Romney may have had issues with the bill. 

Asked for comment, a campaign representative cited adviser Ed Gillespie’s statement from Wednesday in which he walked back his post-debate assertion. “I was wrong when I said last night Governor Romney opposed the Lily Ledbetter act,” Gillespie said. “He never weighed in on it.  As President, he would not seek to repeal it.”

As has been the case since at least April, the campaign has still declined to elaborate Romney’s position on the law before it passed or which portions he might oppose or support.
