The Exterminator: Romney Squishes Bug During Campaign Event

VIDEO: Audience laughs as GOP front-runner exclaims "got em" after stepping on bug.

Towards the end of a question and answer session at a campaign event in Jackson, Mississippi today, while discussing the administrative costs of healthcare, Mitt Romney saw an unidentified critter scurry across the stage and quickly chased after it.

"Oh look at that, look at that little guy, there.  Got him," said Romney as he squashed the bug with his shoe.

"It wasn't really a cockroach.  I promise," he said. "We are in the agriculture building after all right?"

See the video below.
