Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, shot down rising rumors her husband might mount another presidential campaign in an interview with the Los Angeles Times published on Monday evening.
“Done,” said Ann when asked when Mitt wanted to run again. “Completely. Not only Mitt and I are done, but the kids are done. … Done. Done. Done.”
Mitt Romney mounted his White House bid in 2008 after serving as governor of Massachusetts and was the Republican presidential nominee in 2012. There has been growing speculation he might launch a third campaign. On Monday, the Washington Post fueled that fire with a story claiming Romney’s “friends” thought a “flurry of behind-the-scenes activity” including re-connecting with donors and campaigning for other Republicans is “nudging” Mitt Romney “to more seriously consider” running again in 2016.
