President Barack Obama squeezed in some time to stop for doughnuts Thursday on the second day of a West Coast campaign blitz.

Obama and Washington Sen. Patty Murray dropped by Top Pot Doughnuts in downtown Seattle, where Obama ordered a sampler of two dozen doughnuts to go. Obama is in Seattle to campaign with Murray, who is in a tight race against Republican Dino Rossi.

Obama shared a doughnut with Murray, declaring it "outstanding." He urged the other customers at the shop to vote in the upcoming midterm election before carrying the two boxes of doughnuts back to his motorcade.
