NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) — Mitt Romney is briefly mingling with voters in Massachusetts even though he has no hopes of winning the state this fall.

The Republican presidential candidate spent 10 minutes Saturday shaking hands and posing for pictures in Millie's restaurant in Nantucket. Romney wanted photographers to get a shot of him mingling with voters on a day otherwise totally devoted to raising millions of dollars in six closed events in Massachusetts resorts.

Romney was governor of the state, but has conceded President Barack Obama's almost certain win here in November.

Several Millie's patrons wished Romney well. But one man shouted "five years' returns." He was alluding to Democrats' demands that Romney release five years of his tax returns instead of two.
