Romney Insists He Won’t Run for President in 2016
STRATHAM, N.H. (AP) — Mitt Romney is insisting that he won’t pursue a third White House bid.
Instead, the former Republican presidential nominee is calling on New Hampshire voters to punish President Barack Obama by giving Republicans the Senate majority this fall.
Romney is campaigning in New Hampshire for Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown. The former Massachusetts governor says the Senate election offers New Hampshire residents a chance to vote on what they think about Obama’s agenda.
Supporters mobbed Romney during a Brown rally at Scamman’s Bittersweet Farm in Stratham, New Hampshire, the place where Romney announced his last presidential bid.
Romney says the Republican Party will likely have 14 or 15 candidates to pick from in 2016 and that he’ll support the one he thinks can win.
