CHICAGO, May 28 (UPI) -- Potential Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney finished a day of fundraising in Chicago by sending leftover pizza to President Obama's campaigners.

Romney said he enjoyed the deep-dish pizza at Gino's East and sent some to Obama's Chicago re-election headquarters, ABC News reported Friday.

"Great deep dish at @ginoseast. Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team," Romney wrote on his Twitter feed.

The message was accompanied by a picture of a delivery boy heading out of the restaurant.

A source with Obama's campaign confirmed the pizza was received.
