Romney: 'I'd Like to Be in the White House'

By    |   Thursday, 02 Oct 2014 09:49 PM

Mitt Romney may be saying he's not be planning to run for the presidency, but he'd sure like to be in the White House.

The former Massachusetts governor had this to say when asked whether he would run for president again in 2016:

"Ah, no. I'm just sad I'm not able to be there either. I’d like to be in the White House," he said, according to the The Marietta (Ga.) Daily Journal.

Romney then clarified his remarks, which he made during a campaign stop for Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens on Wednesday: "I’m not running and I'm not planning on running. I’ve got nothing to add to that story."

There has been much speculation about Romney's 2016 plans. He has said several times he would not launch a third attempt at becoming president, but in some interviews he has seemed less decisive.

In a recent interview with The New York Times Magazine, Romney said: "We've got a lot of people looking at the race. We'll see what happens."

And last week, Romney's wife, Ann, would not definitively rule out the idea that her husband might make another bid for the Oval Office.

"Well, we will see, won't we, Neil?" she told Fox News' Neil Cavuto.

For now, Romney said he is focused on helping Republicans in their bid to take control of the Senate in next month's midterm elections. He has spent a lot of time on the road in recent months campaigning for GOP candidates.

"There is, within my party, a whole series of different voices that are pulling in different directions," Romney told the Daily Journal. "I’m going to try to encourage a direction of involvement in international affairs, efforts to rebuild our economy and put America in a position where we can create more good jobs for people, see rising wages."
