In Ohio, Romney held rallies in coal-rich eastern Ohio, in Zanesville and in Chillicothe, south of Columbus. He appeared with Sen. Rob Portman, who he had seriously considered for vice president, and with Gov. John Kasich.
The three men shared ice cream at Tom's in Zanesville, where Romney ordered his preference — chocolate peanut butter — as well as a flavor called "White House" that the store's employees urged him to try.
"All right, we'll have one White House and one chocolate peanut butter," Romney said. He set his order down on a table before shaking some hands.
When Romney turned back to the table, Kasich had already dug in — to Romney's ice cream
Amused but peeved, Romney exclaimed, "My peanut butter!"
