Why, it’s as cozy as can be. The National Republican Senatorial Committee has launched a “Grab a Bite With Mitt” contest for those who would relish a future meal with Mitt Romney at a Boston restaurant. Indeed, the committee covers lodging, airfare and of course the eats.

Would it be a turkey club sandwich? Sliders? Pate du foie gras? The restaurant in question has not been revealed.

“We’re confident that Republicans across the country will be eager to take the chance to meet him,” the committee notes.

One person who will not be vying for the honor is Richard Viguerie, the longtime conservative maven and author who is vexed with the committee for declaring it was “all in” for Sen. Thad Cochran in the Mississippi Republican primary. Mr. Viguerie is now calling on Republicans to boycott the organization.

“Conservatives should not give a dime to the National Republican Senatorial Committee, or the Republican National Committee for that matter until they stop running an incumbent protection racket that supports big government candidates like Thad Cochran against the clear preference of the GOP’s grassroots voters,” a vigorous Mr. Viguerie says.

“Thad Cochran is one of the Senate’s least distinguished members. He has spent 42 years in Washington grasping after pork, not leading on the conservative agenda,” he continues. “If Thad Cochran is the Republican nominee in November he will be virtually indistinguishable from the Democrat’s senate nominee, former congressman Travis Childers.”
