Romney made the rounds in Atlanta, Georgia Wednesday, meeting with business leaders to discuss jobs and the economy. He also made an important stop at a local barber shop.
Mitt Romney stopped by Tommy Thomas’s barber shop in Atlanta on Tuesday for a trim.
He came to the right place — Thomas has clipped hair for many of Georgia’s top politicians. “Both senators, the governor, you name them, they all come through the barber shop,” Thomas told POLITICO after cutting Romney’s hair.
Thomas charges $16 for a trim, but he offered to give Romney a cut for free — but the well-coiffed former governor refused and gave Thomas a $20 bill, telling him to keep the change.
Romney tweeted this picture of himself on Tuesday in Atlanta and said: “Brave Tommy, taming the beast with clippers and a comb.”
Romney met with Republican legislators in Florida on Thursday, building his base and helping with fundraising projects. He endorsed Republican budget proposals, saying “Now is the time for all of us to send a powerful message that Americans will no longer tolerate the Washington culture of higher taxes, higher spending, and higher debt.” Romney finished third with 30% of the vote in the 2008 Georgia primaries, and a strong second in Florida.
