Want to Spend the Day With Mitt? If You’re Lucky, You Can


For anyone dreaming of spending the day with presidential candidate Mitt Romney, your wish could finally come true.

The Romney campaign launched a contest this evening that will offer one lucky winner a “chance to spend a day campaigning with Mitt” next month.

Flexing its smartphone skills, Romney sent a text message to supporters writing, “Click here for a chance to join me on the campaign trail.”

So what exactly does a day on the campaign trail entail?

According to the fine print, the winner will get a one round-trip coach class plane ticket within the continental U.S. — date and destination to be determined by the campaign — and a one-night stay at a hotel at the mystery destination. Ground transportation will also be provided to the winner. The whole trip would be worth an estimated $1,025, according to the campaign.

And while no contribution is required for entry, Romney’s Facebook page encouraged a $5 donation when entering the promotion.

Twenty-five finalists will be chosen by random drawing at the Romney headquarters in Boston on Oct. 3 and the campaign will then select the winner who best represents “Romney’s support across the country.”
