"She didn't make it this morning because this was her day that I said she could sleep in, and I provided her breakfast for her this morning," Paul, 76, said to a round of cheers and applause.
But with the couple traveling on the campaign trail, the candidate said the meal wasn't quite as romantic as one would expect.
"Now, I have to confess I didn't make the breakfast," he said. "I just called room service and made sure it was ready when she got up."
