The moment Romney knew he lost the 2012 campaign


The trailer for the documentary Mitt, which will debut on Netflix on Jan. 24, takes you inside the Romney presidential campaign.

It offers a glimpse of how the Romney accepted the news of his defeat. His family is gathered in what appears to be a large hotel room, sitting on 3 sofas facing each other. “I just can’t believe you’re going to lose,” one of his sons says.

He’s not the only one who’s shocked. It’s a quiet and glum scene. The candidate pipes up: “By the way, does somebody have the number of the president?”‘

In a lighter moment, Romney, fully dressed in white tie, attempts to iron a sleeve without taking off his jacket or shirt. “Ouch,” he says.
