In Iowa: Flying With Mitt

Posted: Jan 02, 2008 11:41 AM's National Political Reporter, Amanda Carpenter, is on the Romney plane today and sends in this travel report.

Right now I'm on a little plane with Romney on the way to Quad City. It's taking a little longer than usual to take off because there is too much ice on the runway. But we're able to move through airports much more quickly than the average passenger because we don't have to go through security and board the plane directly without a jetway. Also, we're allowed to use all those wonderful electronic devices like blackberrys, laptops and cameras which allows me to stay in touch with our readers.

Romney will be holding a presser when we land so I'll have more later. For now, I'm strapping on my seatbelt because we're taking off!
