Current republican candidate for United States Senate in Utah, Mitt Romney was the 2012 Republican nominee for President of the United States and served as the Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007. Prior to that, he led the 2002 Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the Winter Olympics. Professionally, he was the co-founder of Bain Capital, a leading investment company, and the turnaround CEO of Bain & Company, an international management consulting firm.

He and his wife, Ann, celebrated 49 years of marriage this year, and are the parents of five sons and 24 grandchildren. Since announcing his bid for Utah Senate in February, Mitt has put 11,000 miles on his 2002 Chevy truck visiting all 29 counties in Utah, including Cache County this week.

While in town, Mitt stopped by STACKED pancakes to visit with us about things from what kind of product he uses in his hair, his favorite car to drive, and his perfect date night with his wife, to how we can keep our kids safe in schools, why people should vote, and why it is important to instill strong values in our children at home.
