Here are some things about the Tea Party candidate that you won’t find on his campaign website:
1. He says he’s tired of “having to listen to Democrats saying that things are just fine!’’
2. His favorite piece of technology is a very well-made cigar cutter. (How refined!)
4. If he’s going to indulge in a little reality TV, he watches “Restaurant Impossible.’’
5. His spirit animal would be a wolverine because “they’re tough and don’t back down!’’
6. He rarely uses public transportation and hasn’t taken a train since four years ago when he went to a Red Sox game.
7. He used to own a shotgun (that he built himself) as the manufacturing manager at Savage Arms in Westfield. He sold it eight years ago.
8. His first set of wheels was a Plymouth Fury II coupe.
9. He enjoys eating clam chowder for lunch.
10. His favorite restaurant is “The Flying Rhino Cafe and Watering Hole’’ in Worcester.
