WASHINGTON — With North Carolina a key swing state in Tuesday’s presidential election, Democratic nominee Barack Obama has pledged, if elected, to support five key textile industry policy positions, including a monitoring program for Chinese apparel and textile imports.
It was the most definitive statement Obama has made on trade, especially as it affects the apparel and textile industry, and ties into the broader agenda he has pushed during the long campaign of saving jobs and supporting the American manufacturing sector.
