Will Mitt Romney run for president? Not according to Ann Romney.
“Done,” she said to Los Angeles Times reporter Maeve Reston. “Completely. Not only Mitt and I are done, but the kids are done,” she said. “Done. Done. Done.”
A new Washington Post story reports that friends and donors continue to urge Romney to run again for the presidency, pointing out that Ronald Reagan ran three times for president.
Romney “allies” continue to leak details of Romney’s activities, including a meeting with Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch.
“According to two Romney allies familiar with the conversation, Romney was cagey with Murdoch but expressed concerns about the developing GOP field,” the Post reports. “Romney told Murdoch that he felt uneasy about the party’s non-interventionist drift on foreign policy and the base’s embrace of ideological hard-liners.”
