Well, the 2012 presidential campaign race is officially over with President Obama’s reelection and Mitt Romney left in the dust. Even though Romney came in second that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve some sort of prize . . . right?

Who is more perfect — and unexpected — than PETA to send Romney a gift? PETA announced they are getting in on that action by delivering Romney a vegan consolation prize basket.

The animal rights group discovered that while on the campaign trail the Republican candidate was seen devouring several vegetarian treats including a veggie breakfast burrito and veggie burgers. Yum!

In honor of Mitt’s healthy choices, PETA thought this would be the right choice.

As PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk says, “Turns out the most reliable polls were those showing an increase in the number of people eating vegetarian and vegan foods.”

No word on what type of vegan goodies are included in the basket, but hopefully, Romney enjoys his treats!
