Romney merits ABC nod

In perhaps the first such move this campaign season by a major national construction group, Associated Builders and Contractors endorsed Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

“[His] election is a top priority for the commercial and industrial construction industry and the millions of Americans it employs,” said 2012 ABC Chairman Eric Regelin, president of Granix LLC in Ellicott City, Md. “He has articulated a clear position on issues important to ABC members, including opposing federally mandated project labor agreements.”
