15 Presidential Debate Dinner Ideas Inspired By Obama and Romney Campaign Spending
Last week Politico broke down information from a recent review of Federal Election Commission reports detailing Mitt Romney and Barack Obama's campaign spending. It contains everything from office supplies and gas expenses to which hotels and restaurants the respective campaigns patronize most often. Gut Check doesn't particularly care where Romney or Obama choose to buy staplers, but sandwiches? That's a subject near and dear to our heart.
In preparation for tonight's presidential town hall debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, Gut Check has compiled lists of restaurants that Romney and Obama's teams opt for on the campaign trail to act as, shall we say, themed-menus for the occasion.
The following are robot-like precise dollar amounts spent by each campaign at various restaurants and fast-food chains across the country. Romney has made it no secret that he enjoys fast-food -- heck, his dad was privy to free McDonald's hamburgers for life -- but Obama's campaign doesn't steer clear of it, either.
