Utah Sen. Mitt Romney had to host lunch on Thursday — the day before Utah’s special holiday, Pioneer Day. And boy, did he bring the Beehive State with him to Washington.
Romney posted on Instagram that he brought some J Dawgs hot dogs to Congress along with BYU Creamery ice cream, some Pioneer Chips and some chocolate milk, which was also from BYU Creamery. Specifically, Romney brought “Funeral Potatoes” chips and Graham Canyon ice cream with mint brownies.
Romney brought the food to a lunch with Republican senators. Each week, Republican senators host a lunch and take turns being the host. This week was Romney’s turn.
J Dawgs founder Jayson Edwards visited Congress with Romney.
We captured some Instagram Story photos from J Dawgs, which revealed Edwards went with Romney to Washington. Some of the photos showed Edwards wheeling hot dogs through the airport after he arrived.
Later, the photos showed that Romney, Edwards and others had gathered for lunch to eat some J Dawgs.
“No grilling at the capital, so Mitt volunteered his patio. Sometimes you just have to roll with it,” the post read.
In fact, Edward also met with Sen. Susan Collins. He said in his post she “led the fight to get small businesses the payroll protection loan program. Literally saved many businesses like mine, I was so thrilled to meet her and thank her.”
- “My favorite meat is hot dog, by the way. That is my favorite meat,” he said.
