Romney to campaign for Republican candidates

Failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says he plans to “help shape national priorities” by helping fellow conservatives in their mid-term election campaigns next year.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal published Thursday, Romney said he is considering writing a book and a series of opinion pieces, a three-day summit in Utah next week and stumping for 2014 congressional Republican candidates.

The Utah meeting will be “forward-looking” but closed to outsiders and the press, according to Romney.

He described the event as an opportunity to “exchange views and update our thinking about where the world is headed and what the national agenda ought to be.”

Global youth unemployment, US competitiveness and declining family structures were among topics of interest to Romney.

The former Massachusetts governor has been largely absent from the limelight since he conceded defeat to President Barack Obama in November.

The Republican Party needs “to translate our message in a way that minorities understand,” Romney said, calling for a greater focus on reaching out to the growing key constituency of Hispanic voters.

But Romney acknowledged he may not be best placed to offer guidance to his party.

Romney’s wife Ann earlier told “CBS This Morning” that she had “no regrets” about her husband’s presidential run, his second, having also lost in the 2008 Republican primaries.
