TAMPA - A Secret Service agent on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign plane accidentally left a gun in the plane's bathroom.

The gun was discovered in the restroom by a reporter traveling with Romney shortly before he departed the Republican convention in Florida to address the American Legion convention in Indianapolis on Wednesday.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said on Wednesday that the "matter will be handled internally."
