MILWAUKEE -- Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney may have forgotten that Sunday was April Fools' Day.
His staff did not.
They took Romney to a room he thought was packed with supporters gathered for a pancake brunch. It was supposed to be his first campaign stop Sunday as he courted Wisconsin voters ahead of Tuesday's primary.
Rep. Paul Ryan introduced Romney as he waited backstage. There was some cheering, but his staff told Romney not to expect a big crowd.
When he walked out, the room was completely empty. His supporters were actually gathered in another room upstairs.
Romney shared the story once he made it to the right room. He says he became the April fool.
His staff plans to post a video of the prank on their blog.
