Mitt Romney makes time for Wendy’s

After stopping at a campaign office in Richmond Heights, Ohio, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan stopped for some Wendy's. 

"What a great day this is. As fun as any. Yesterday, though, was a great day," Romney told employees. He noted that the burger chain started in the Buckeye State: “We figured because Wendy’s was invented in Ohio, what better place to get lunch than Wendy’s, right?”

One of the workers offered to pay for the Republican ticket's lunch; Romney politely declined. His last campaign trail lunch: a quarter-pound burger, chili and a Frosty.

At the Cleveland-area campaign office, Romney pumped up volunteers with some inspirational words. "We have glorious great days ahead and we're going to accomplish that together," he said. "So thank you! You guys are fabulous."
