NORFOLK, Va.—On the eve of the kickoff of his four-state bus tour, Mitt Romney made a rare appearance in the back of his campaign plane en route to Virginia—though he didn't say much.

The Republican presidential candidate came back after he was waved at by a member of his traveling press corps and asked to come back. "No, no, no," Romney initially mouthed, but then he relented.

Asked how he was feeling, Romney replied, "Bus tour! It's great. It's great to be out campaigning."

Off the road raising cash Thursday, Romney said fundraising "has its own rewards, obviously." But, he said, "campaigning is the most fun, the most enjoyable and rewarding."

"And with that," he said, "back to my yogurt."
