Romney Might Run Again in 08

Mitt Romney is down, but he might not be out.

Romney suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination after a disappointing showing on Super Tuesday, and has endorsed John McCain for the GOP nod.

But Romney’s son Josh says it’s “possible” his father might rejoin the race as a candidate for vice president or for president if McCain’s campaign stalls.

Romney hasn’t commented publicly about a recent New York Times article that implied McCain had an improper relationship with a female lobbyist.

McCain and the lobbyist have firmly denied the allegation, but subsequent reports have contradicted some of McCain’s denials, and further disclosures could raise questions about the viability of McCain’s campaign, Andrew Malcolm reports in the Los Angeles Times.

Because he suspended his campaign rather than terminating it, Romney still controls nearly 300 delegates he won in early primaries and caucuses.

Josh Romney, who campaigned actively for his father, told the Deseret Morning News that he is considering running for the House of Representatives from Utah’s 2nd Congressional District.

Asked if Mitt Romney might rejoin the race, Josh said it is “unlikely, but possible.”

Malcolm notes: “Such a move could provide a possible rallying point for conservatives.”
