Tony Romo & Girlfriend Candice Crawford Travel To DC (PICTURES)

Politicians, media stars and celebrities weren't the only ones attending Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo made the trip to the nation's capital with girlfriend Candice Crawford. The couple stopped by a People/TIME party on Friday and then stayed through Saturday night to attend an MSNBC after-party.

The Washington Post reports that ex-girlfriend Jessica Simpson was "looking miserable," and suggests that the presence of Romo's new romantic interest may explain why. At least the Cowboys QB didn't break out into song. Scroll down for photos, including a shot of Candice's older brother, Chace Crawford.
