Great deep dish at @ginoseast. Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team

Romney did not elaborate on why he sent the leftover pizza to team Obama. (Revenge, like pizza, is a dish best served cold? Redistribution of wealth?)

A call for comment made to Romney's campaign was not immediately returned.

According to ABC News, a campaign spokesperson confirmed that the pizzas were really delivered.

Late update:

Gail Gitcho, Romney's communications director, told TPM in an email that it wasn't a prank at all.

"No prank - just a nice gesture since we were just a few blocks away from their HQ yesterday and had extra pizza," she wrote.
