Bloomberg reported that Charles Wright, manager of Chipotle’s Maumee, Ohio, location, said Clinton left no change after placing her order Monday afternoon.

“Her bill was $20 and some change, and they paid with $21 and left,” Wright said of the Democratic presidential candidate’s spending.

Clinton, who was on her way to Iowa, visited the Maumee franchise during its afternoon lunch rush alongside Huma Abedin, the vice chairwoman of her presidential campaign. Employees did not recognize either woman.

“We get a bunch of tips,” Wright, a GOP voter, said of his store’s typical business. “If we’re doing our job right, people tip.”

Wright said the pair ordered a chicken burrito bowl, a chicken salad, a blackberry Izzy and a soda. After an employee rang them up, he added, Clinton did not cover the final total.

“The other lady paid the bill,” he said of Clinton’s companion. “Clinton didn’t pay.”

The former secretary of State announced her campaign in a video released on social media Sunday.

“I’m running for president,” Clinton said in Sunday’s video.

“Everyday Americans need a champion,” she continued. “I want to be that champion.”

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh raised the issue of Clinton’s tipping during his Tuesday broadcast. Her behavior was important, he argued, given the rhetoric of her campaign.

“But I would like to know if she left anything in the tip jar, because that would be an indication that she understands the average, ordinary, everyman that she seeks to represent,” Limbaugh said.
