Romney sequestered in Vermont for debate prep
Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney picks up his order after stopping at Lui-Lui Restaurant on Wednesday in West Lebanon, N.H.

Presidential candidates in the past have chosen their homes or battleground states for debate preparation. Not Romney — and his timing is unusual, too. Candidates usually spend the week of Labor Day campaigning heavily in battleground states.
