Area Former Presidential Aspirant Buys Sweet Van

Mitt Romney has a new van, and WMUR New Hampshire's James Pindell is on it:

Last week Romney showed up without an appointment to Granite Ford in Rochester on his way to his house in Wolfeboro. Romney drove the sporty 2005 Mustang that was a gift from his wife the year it came out. He met with Kevin Donovan at Granite Ford and they worked out a deal to order him the van and to accept the trade-in. A Romney aide confirmed that he sold the Mustang.

Donovan told WMUR that Romney "didn't make a big deal of it, so I don't want to make a big deal of it."

A Romney aide was called. The Romney aide could not speak to the exact purpose for which the van was bought. One can only speculate: perhaps transporting people on roads?

[EDITORS: Seamus joke goes here, probably.]

Anyway, Mitt Romney has a pretty sweet van, now.
