Our guest columnist only serves Diet Coke.


There’s no better way to kick off the beginning of summer than a road trip across our beautiful country. And who better to hit the road with than supporters.

Donate $5 today to be automatically entered for the chance to join me for a day on the road.

Hope to see you soon,

Mitt Romney
