Click on Mitt Romney's campaign website and you'll read part of the GOP presidential nominee's gracious "thank you" message to supporters.

But the site no longer takes you to his many position papers, speeches, news releases, bio or tax documents. Visitors to mittromney.com are now led to a merchandise page, where they can buy Romney swag.

The official Romney-Ryan unisex T-shirt and baseball cap are available for $30 each. Campaign buttons go for $3. The red, white and blue rubber bracelets proclaiming "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, America Can't Lose" are available for $10.

Proceeds go to Romney Victory, the joint fundraising committee Romney and various Republican committees.

None of the merchandise is discounted, like the swag at a souvenir shop at Washington's Ronald Reagan National Airport. Free shipping, however, is available for a limited time through the Romney website.

"I still believe in the people of America. And so Ann and I join with you to earnestly pray for this great nation," Romney says on the website. "Thank you, and God bless America."
