Romney Insider: Mitt Will Run Again in 2016

By    |   Thursday, 04 Dec 2014 08:37 PM

A member of Mitt Romney's inner circle is convinced the former Massachusetts governor – and two-time presidential candidate – intends to make another run in 2016, Business Insider reports.

Romney went to New York City Monday for meetings with financial backers of his past campaigns to lay the groundwork for a White House bid, according to the insider, Business Insider reports.

Those attending included developer Stephen Ross, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, and hedge funders Julian Robertson and Paul Singer, the source told Business Insider.

His New York visit also included Monday night's football matchup between the Miami Dolphins — owned by Ross — and Johnson's New York Jets. Romney was even spotted walking with Johnson before the game.


In October, The Washington Post reported on similar meetings that were leading Romney to "more seriously consider" running again.

The Post reported those meetings also were with donors and supporters in "key states," as well as a dinner for "former campaign advisers and business associates."

Business Insider said Romney also met with New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who endorsed Romney when he was the GOP nominee in 2012. But Christie may be considering his own run.

Neither Romney nor Christie commented, Business Insider reports.

Romney and his wife have insisted he's not interested in a third White House run.

But a Quinnipiac poll last week showed GOP voters nationwide want him in the race.
