Mitt Romney: 'My Staff Had More Women in Senior Leadership Positions Than Any Other State'
In tonight's town hall debate at Hofstra University, former Gov. Mitt Romney discussed his record in employing women, citing his staff during his time as governor of Massachusetts as proof of his efforts. "I went to a number of women’s groups and said, 'Can you help us find folks,' and they brought us whole binders full of women."
He continued, saying, "I was proud of the fact that after I staffed my Cabinet and my senior staff, that the University of New York in Albany did a survey of all 50 states, and concluded that mine had more women in senior leadership positions than any other state in America."
