Mitt Romney to address U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney campaigns at Van Dyck Park September 13, 2012 in Fairfax, Va.

This morning Mitt Romney is set to speak before the annual convention of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Romney seems to have achieved a small bounce among Hispanics after the Republican National Convention. Today is another chance to reach out to those critical voters.

"I think that Governor Romney's attendance demonstrates the important role that Hispanic business plays in our national political conversation," says Javier Palomarez, the Chamber's president.

"Our Hispanic business community is hopeful that we might hear from the Governor his ideas, his plans, for spurring innovation and helping American businesses weather this economic downtown," Palomarez adds.
