Mitt Romney

No dinner plans? How about a burger with Mitt?

It appears Mitt Romney is doing all he can to prolong the food fight that broke out amongst the GOP candidates during their recent Southern swing

With "fattening" cheesy grits and catfish behind him, the former Massachusetts governor is offering backers the chance to join him for a bite at his favorite burger joint in California. 

"Donate $5 today to be automatically entered for the chance to grab a bite with Mitt," reads the contribution page on Romney’s campaign website. 


While the campaign doesn't reveal the name of the restaurant, we humbly suggest Romney move this party to Washington for a burger at Dicks. 

Here’s hoping Mitt picks up the tab (and holds off on any trim-the-fat jokes).
