April Fools on Romney
It’s not a good sign when you’re the leading candidate in the Republican presidential primary race and not a single person shows up to one of your campaign appearances.
Luckily for Mitt Romney, Sunday was April Fools Day, and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Ron Johnson were just having a little fun with him when they introduced him to an empty room at a campaign appearance in Wauwatosa on Sunday afternoon.
While a packed dining hall of supporters waited upstairs at the Bluemound Gardens Restaurant, the two Wisconsin Republicans had prepared a nearly identical room decorated with campaign signs in a completely vacant downstairs room.
“We didn’t get much of a crowd this morning,” they told Romney. “It will be OK, it will be OK.”
