You Won't Believe What Mitt Romney Ate Before The Debate

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney did a major carbo-load before tonight’s debate, chowing down on take-out spaghetti and a barbecue sandwich from the Cheesecake Factory, according to his “body man” Garrett Jackson.

Maybe it’s just me but that seems like a lot to put into a nervous stomach.

Apart from the gross meal, though, Romney seemed pretty relaxed, hanging out with his sons and grandchildren before heading over to the debate tonight. 

Here are two pictures, courtesy of Jackson’s Twitter feed:

But these pictures, of Romney and his wife Ann, perhaps reveal more about the candidate’s state of mind on the biggest night of Romney’s political career.
