Romney's sons headed to Conan

(CNN) – Mitt Romney's five sons are headed to Conan O'Brien's couch for their first joint television interview of the 2012 presidential campaign.

Tagg, Matt, Josh, Ben and Craig Romney will join the late night host Wednesday. This week Romney has been campaigning with two of his sons – Craig and Matt – as part of his six-state, five day bus tour.

On Sunday, Romney's sons all appeared in a campaign web video celebrating Father's Day. Using old home video footage of their father, they talked up his penchant for practical jokes and his commitment to helping others.

Aside from their campaign trail appearances, the five younger Romneys were spoofed on SNL, all wearing identical blue shirts and saying things like: "We like the same things as young people, such as sport, cinema, and doo-wop!"

Conan O'Brien's late-night show airs on CNN's sister network TBS at 11 p.m. ET.

    Al-NY,NY - you mean like daddy always giving Fox News comments but no one else
    You didn't see Romney on Face the Nation yesterday??? The only channel further left is MSNBC and nobody watches it so why bother.

    Claudia, Houston, Tx - Where are your sons and daughters headed today in their U.S. Military Uniforms carrying the heavy burden of protecting Romney and his five(5) sons. I had six(6) brothers, five(5) served our country because it was their duty.
    Congrats on joining the VOLUNTEER force of the USA. You might want to look up the word in the dictionary because you certainly don't understand it.

    The trust fund babies are going to tout their daddies 1% credentials. Conan should ask them their opinion about the President. I do recall one or two of them calling him awesome.

    For a moment there I thought conan was one of those cities where our troops are fighting for the rights of the super rich who are too good to serve their country.
    What is it with the bishop now? The "non working" wife with her expensive horse bit didn't work so now he wants to use those useless sons of his.
    It's NOT going to work.
    @obama – you are either new on this blog or you are four or somebody else whose name escapes me.

    While they are there Conan, ask them why haven't a one signed up for military duty during there party declared war on WMD. And Yet, every thing that come out of their dad's mouth concerning foreign policy is "war, war and war". War on Russia, War on Iran, War on Syria, War on Korea, North, South, it doesn't matter, as long as my five sons don't have to serve. Yeah Conan, as them, the Romney boys, about that.
