EXCLUSIVE: What Rhode Island’s Candidates Had For Breakfast

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

 

As Rhode Island's candidates headed out to vote (for themselves), work the streets for a final day, and head to their campaign headquarters, what did they eat for breakfast to start this big day? GoLocalProv chased down the breakfast choices of the following statewide candidates.

Brendan Doherty

The former State Police Colonel and challenger to David Cicilline dined on scrambled eggs at Newport Creamery on Providence's Smith Sreet.

Sheldon Whitehouse

Rhode Island's incumbent US Senator began his day with tea and toast, then followed a bit later with a bagel from Bristol Bagel Works.

Barry Hinckley

The GOP challenger to US Senator Sheldon Whitehouse hit the ground running with a protein shake this morning.

Mitt Romney

On the presidential front, GOP candidate Mitt Romney took off for his day of voting and campaigning with toast with peanut butter and honey.

Barack Obama

By contrast, President Barack Obama (who has already cast his vote), rose early to send pre-dawn emails to supporters. It's been said that the President's favorite breakfast is waffles and sausage, but no word on whether that was the choice this morning. Meanwhile, Obama is eating both lunch and dinner in his Hyde Park, Illinois, home today.
