Street food lunch with a side of politics: Andrew Romanoff works the crowd at Civic Center Eats

As primary voting headed into its final hours, candidates and their teams went anyplace with a crowd, working to sway those who had yet to cast ballots.

As testament to the number of Denverites who are out chasing food trucks on Tuesdays, Andrew Romanoff chose to do face-time with the crowds at Civic Center Eats.

There, the man who hopes to gain the Democratic nomination for Senate maneuvered through lines of people waiting for tacos and gravy-smothered biscuits, putting in one of his last public appearances before the votes are tallied tonight.

Later today, he'll head over to City Hall for his primary-night party.
