Mitt Romney, currently considered the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, will make an appearance at Microsoft tomorrow afternoon as part of his visit to the Seattle region. The topic will be trade policy, according to an advisory issued by the Romney campaign.
A Microsoft spokesman tells the Seattle Times that Romney will speak to the company’s Political Action Committee, which has extended similar invitations to all of the major presidential candidates.
No word on whether Romney will meet with Microsoft executives or tour company’s headquarters campus as part of his visit. The building where he’s speaking is adjacent to the futuristic Microsoft Home, which notable visitors often tour when they visit the company.
Romney is also slated to attend a private fundraiser in downtown Seattle. He received a boost this week with the endorsement of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who last week announced that he wouldn’t be running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.
