DENVER — The only news Mitt Romney plans to make Tuesday, as he prepares for Wednesday night’s debate here, might be his lunch order.
Romney and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, who’s been playing the role of President Barack Obama during mock debates, grabbed lunch at a Denver Chipotle after the campaign toured a local business earlier Tuesday morning.
At the Stapleton Chipotle, Romney ordered a carnitas burrito with black beans, pico de gallo and guacamole, according to a pool report from Maeve Reston of the Los Angeles Times.
Romney also spent the morning at a north Denver business, Western Steel and Boiler, a small boiler manufacturer and repair plant.
“It happened real fast and it was an honor having Gov. Romney come by,” said Dennis Summers, the company’s manager, who was contacted just last night about the campaign touring the facility and using it to shoot video of Romney, possibly for a future campaign ad.
“It was amazing,” Summers said. “I didn’t think that would ever happen.”
Ann Romney is set to rally supporters at a public event Tuesday afternoon at Hudson Gardens in Littleton.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will headline another rally Wednesday morning at the National Western Stock Show complex.
