Girlfriends, burgers and Coldplay were among the topics local alternative weekly The Pulse posed to Chattanooga's youngest-ever congressional candidate last week.

Weston Wamp, 24, is the Republican son of eight-term congressman Zach Wamp and is challenging his father's successor, U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann.

After some political questions, an anonymous Pulse interviewer said: "Several females in our office think you're, well, hot, and are inclined to vote for you based solely on your dimples and hard body. Do you have a serious girlfriend or are you playing the field?"

"That's flattering, but I'm realizing that running for Congress doesn't leave a lot of time for a personal life," Wamp responded.

Then came this: "The McRib: Pork waste on a bun or saucy riblets of seasonal McGoodness?"

"I'll go with a Big Mac," Wamp said.
