Romney Huddled with Conservative Leaders In D.C. This Week
Mitt Romney huddled privately for a little over an hour in Washington with about 10 prominent Republican leaders, POLITICO has learned.
Romney advisers Peter Flaherty and Jay Sekulow, who serve as liaisons between the former Massachusetts governor and movement conservatives, coordinated the meeting at the Omni Shoreham on Wednesday, the day the candidate was in town to speak to The Associated Press.
Attendees included former Attorney General Ed Meese, Heritage's Ed Feulner and Matt Spalding former ACU President David Keene, AEI's Arthur Brooks and the National Right to Life's Darla St Martin.
"There was very little discussion about the primary," Sekulow said. "It was a free-flowing discussion about both issues and how the governor sees the [general election] developing. Gov. Romney articulated his vision for how he wants to move the country in a different direction."
