No joke: Hillary Clinton could launch her presidential campaign on Aprils Fools Day, according to a new report.

The Guardian, a British news publication, reported Monday that Clinton “is closing in on April 1 as the operational start date of her long-awaited presidential campaign,” citing multiple sources.

While it seems likely her advisers would nix an announcement on the day of the year best known for hoaxes, it does appear that the Democrat could make her entrance into the race official next month.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month that Clinton and “her close advisers are telling Democratic donors she will enter the presidential race sooner than expected, likely in April, a move that would allay uncertainties within her party and allow her to rev up fundraising.”
