Romney spokesman Ryan Williams downplayed the loss to Channel 10, saying that while the robbery was "unfortunate and an inconvenience," the campaign was not worried about the loss of vital or sensitive information. San Diego police told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the devices were wiped remotely.

“My understanding is once they found out they called people and had everything shut down,” Detective Gary Hassen told the paper.

The police also told Channel 10 that there was no sign of forced entry on the car, and that they don't know if the burglary was random. 

The Romney family owns a home in the San Diego area, and the GOP front-runner held a fundraising event there Monday.
