Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says that while he reads Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” books, he’s not a fan of vampires.

“I mean, I like the Twilight series,” Romney told NBC’s Jamie Gangel in an interview that aired Tuesday. “I thought it was fun.”

“I don’t like vampires personally, I don’t know any, but you know my granddaughter was reading it and I thought, ‘Well this looks like fun,’ so I read that,” he added.
