Photo: Twihards Mitt And Ann Romney Can Finally Watch 'Breaking Dawn 2' In Peace
What is Mitt Romney doing now that he's finally off the campaign trail? Like the rest of America, he's seeing "Breaking Dawn 2," duh.Last night, Mitt and Ann Romney were spotted at a movie theater in Del Mar, California— near their La Jolla beach home we're guessing. They managed to go out without a bodyguard or anything, though they weren't able to escape the watchful eye of a TMZ photog. Afterward the Romneys went out for pizza, and everyone said Romney was totally cool and posed for pictures with people.
