On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox New Sunday,” Washington Post columnist George Will said the Republican Party has a deep bench of potential presidential candidates for 2016, therefore “they do not need to look backwards” and renominate former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA).
Will said, “It’s very hard to produce unanimity in America politics particularly in fractious republicans but Mitt Romney did so this week. There’s no one expressing the desire, the pent up desire, for another Romney campaign. Is the field weak? He doesn’t have that excuse. This is the strongest most diverse republican field since 1856. Is the party weak? They control 31 governors, seven of the ten largest states have republican governors, they control both legislative chambers and the governorship in 23 states with 251 electoral votes. The republican party is geared up for a very strong showing in 2016 and they do not need to look backwards.”
