Romney Aides Block Reporters from Rope Line at Campaign Event in Florida

Reporters assigned to the Romney campaign took to Twitter this morning after press aides and the U.S. Secret Service attempted to block the press from asking the GOP presidential candidate questions while he worked the rope line.

A spokesperson for the campaign told Politico, “This was an error on the part of the campaign staff and volunteers. We have reminded them that press is allowed on the rope line to record the governor’s interactions with voters.”

CNN’s video of the incident is after the jump.
