It's never too early to start preparing for a big event. At least that's what Mitt Romney and his campaign are thinking as they reportedly made time recently to prepare for this fall's presidential debates, which are still three months away.
Romney sources told the New York Daily News that President Obama's Republican rival found some time during his Park City, Utah retreat last month to work through a couple of rounds of "debate prep."
The Daily News described the prep as sorting "through a variety of topics sure to come up in the three Presidential debates, like the state of the economy and the war in Afghanistan." The newspaper reported that aides "kicked around the best 'test responses' to questions they expect Obama and debate moderators will toss at" Romney.
More of these sessions are expected over the summer, reports the Daily News. The traditional "podium practices," when someone stands in for Mr. Obama, reportedly won't happen for awhile.
There are three presidential debates scheduled: Oct. 3 in Denver, Oct. 16 in Hempstead, N.Y., and Oct. 22 in Boca Raton, Fla.
