Stumping in New Hampshire on Wednesday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney revealed a bit about his strategies for staying in shape on the campaign trail.
"Hey, I heard you pull the cheese off your pizza to stay thin. Is that true?" asked a woman at Village Pizza in Newport, N.H., in the southwestern part of the state, where the Romney bus tour had made a stop.
"You know, on occasion, but on the campaign trail you need all the calories you can get," laughed Romney.
"And do you run three miles a day like they say?" she asked.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney arrives with his wife, Ann, for a rally at the American Polish Cultural Center earlier this month in Troy, Mich. The former Massachusetts governor is in effect the front-runner in the race for the GOP nomination, despite holding fewer rallies, town hall meetings or media appearances than other candidates.
