In a segment that aired on Thursday’s broadcast of “CBS This Morning,” CBS News congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes reported on the activities of former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA), the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, during this midterm election cycle.
Cordes pointed out that Romney had been stumping for various Republicans whereas President Barack Obama, Romney’s 2012 opponent, has not.
However, when he was asked by Cordes about the possibility of a 2016 run for president, Romney flatly denied that as an option.
“I’m not running,” he said. “I’m going to be helping someone else who is.”
