In the afternoon, Romney visited his son Tagg's house for about two and a half hours and spent time playing with his grandkids, Gorka said.
Gorka told reporters traveling with Romney that the candidate was not holding any debate preparation sessions. He and President Barack Obama will face off in their first debate Wednesday.
