Mitt Romney Cockroach Beats Barack Obama Bug In Presidential Cockroach Derby

Mitt Romney could be crawling to a White House victory if the efforts of a namesake cockroach are any indication.

Every four years, the New Jersey Pest Management Association holds a "presidential cockroach derby" that picks two Madagascar hissing cockroaches to stand in for the Republican and Democratic nominees and races them on a three-foot-long track.

This year marked the 16th Running of the Roaches and pitted a Romney roach against a Barack Obama bug, each with a tiny caricature of the nominees taped to their backs.

Leonard Douglen, association executive director of the NJPMA, admits the race is a publicity stunt for the organization, but still thinks the roach race can be a good indicator of who will win the real campaign come November.
