Bethlehem, New Hampshire (CNN) - Mitt Romney prepared for a punishing day of events throughout northern New Hampshire Thursday by inducing sugar shock.
The GOP candidate warned an audience at an Elks Lodge in Bethlehem he might talk more quickly than normal because he'd just finished his own personal breakfast of champions: Frosted Flakes cereal, toast with honey and chocolate milk.
"I am kind of high on sugar this morning and that may speed things up a bit," he said.
The campaign booked a packed day for the former Massachusetts governor, who will make seven stops on Thursday alone and sit for several interviews.
But the governor will traverse New Hampshire in style on his new campaign bus. The Romney campaign-mobile boasts a small kitchen area and 24 seats.
The coach was crafted by Premier Transportation and is - naturally - called the Reagan model. Other bus models are named for different presidents, such as Jefferson, Grant or Monroe.
Pictures of the governor on the campaign trail line the walls, along with a large banner with an image of George Romney, the candidate's father.
Romney's day will be largely consumed by retail stops, where he will chat with voters.
Next week the candidate will take the bus to Iowa, where he will campaign Dec. 28 through Dec. 30.
