2002 Romney Testimony Mentions Returning To Massachusetts For Business

Mitt Romney has come under fire from Democrats over what year he left Bain Capital. Romney contends he left the company in 1999, while Democrats have pointed to SEC documents he signed as CEO of Bain past the 1999 date he said he left. In this testimony Romney gave in 2002 he speaks about returning to Massachusetts for "a number of social trips and business trips that brought me back to Massachusetts, board meetings, Thanksgiving and so forth." Romney also mentions having "a good deal of back and forth" between Massachusetts and Utah in the first half of 1999.
