GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney made a swing through North Charleston today. He first toured the new Boeing 787 Final Assembly Facility, then spoke to more than 100 supporters at the North Charleston City Hall. And, it was Boeing’s fight with the NLRB that was on Romney’s mind.
“It’s an assault on business. It’s an assault on jobs. It’s an assault on states that have right-to-work policies. It is simply the product of political favoritism and payback. It has no place in the American economy, and frankly, it should not be a part of our political system. It’s unseemly,” says Romney.
The NLRB filed a complaint earlier this year against Boeing saying it violated federal law by expanding in right-to-work South Carolina, when Washington State is unionized.
While speaking to the North Charleston crowd, South Carolina Romney Chair State Treasurer Curtis Loftis made a few remarks–
“Mitt Romney is going to be the next president because people in South Carolina are pragmatic. We have a big say, we have an outside responsibility and opportunity, and I think as things come closer to Election Day, to our primary day, you’re going to see people understand that in order for us to take the White House back there’s only one path and one path only and that’s Mitt Romney,” says Loftis.
Loftis says Romney will create jobs, which is what America needs in the next president. He says he will be a state chairman that will be out with bumper stickers, shaking hands and explaining the importance in a vote for Romney.
