Romance and politics go together like -- well we're not sure what. But apparently Republican National Convention staffer Bradley Thompson thought they were a winning combination for a proposal.

Wednesday morning, Thompson led girlfriend of two years (and fellow staffer) Laura Bowman on stage. Gigantic screens -- usually reserved for the faces of GOP candidates -- displayed pictures of their dog and the words "Laura Bowman will you marry me?"

Bowman said yes immediately and the crowd cheered while they kissed.
RNC chairman Reince Priebus even tweeted a congrats to the couple:
Congrats to the lovely couple who got engaged on the convention stage today ! twitter.com/Reince/status/…

Thompson later told the AP he had gone to Tampa, Fla. with the ring but didn't have his entire proposal mapped out. Something in the atmosphere of the convention must have inspired Thompson.
Move over, Mitt and Ann -- these two are the cutest couple at the RNC.
