Netflix released a trailer Wednesday for the upcoming Mitt Romney campaign documentary “Mitt” that includes footage of him nearly choking up as he and his family planned his concession speech on election night.

“Someone have a number for the President?” Romney is shown asking his aides. 

The trailer also shows behind-the-scenes footage of debate prep and the campaign trail, including Romney attempting to iron the sleeve of a tuxedo while wearing it. “Mitt” was directed by Greg Whiteley, who was granted extensive access to the Romney campaign.

“Mitt” premieres at the Sundance Film Festival Jan. 17. It debuts on Netflix Jan. 24.
