Romney Takes Pizza Break; Michelle Obama Urges Supporters to Donate Dinner Dollars

The latest food-related news from the campaign trail

Instead of continuing his whirlwind national campaign tour during the Democratic National Convention this week, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney spent the past few days prepping for his upcoming debates in West Windsor, Vt.

During his stay at the sprawling home of Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kerry Healey, Romney took a trip to West Lebanon, N.H., about 40 minutes away, to do a handful of media interviews and stop for a pizza at Lui-Lui, a local hot spot. Romney mingled with customers and posed for a few photos before taking his pizza to go.

Meanwhile, following her widely praised speech that kicked off the Democratic National Convention, Michelle Obama took to the Web yesterday to urge supporters to donate to her husband’s campaign via an email blast. In the email, Obama noted a particularly generous supporter who donated the money she typically spends on a pizza dinner for her family to the campaign. She went on to explain that showing such commitment as sacrificing a family dinner is exactly the kind of support that will make a difference in the upcoming election.
