Weber Joins Romney as Policy Adviser

Former Republican congressman Vin Weber, who had been aligned with Tim Pawlenty’s campaign, has joined Mitt Romney’s campaign to serve as a special adviser on policy, with a focus on economic and foreign policy affairs. Weber served as Romney’s policy chair in the previous election cycle.

The campaign also announced today that former New Hampshire state senate president Tom Eaton has endorsed Romney. 

And while Romney is being coy about whether he intends to campaign aggressively in Iowa or not, his campaign did announce today these new additions to their Iowa leadership team: state Rep. Linda Miller, Dallas County recorder Chad Airhart, Woodbury County activist Kristin Moran, and Story County activist Jacqui Norman.
