2016 Presidential Race, Candidates, and Voting: Mitt Romney Says 'We'll See What Happens' About Making Another Run
Although Mitt Romney has adamantly denied that he will make a third attempt to run for president, the former Massachusetts governor changed his tone when recently asked about his political aspirations.
After being defeated in his second race for the White House by President Barack Obama in Nov. 2012, the former Republican presidential candidate insisted that he was not interested in running for president again.
However, he hinted that he's keeping the door open to another opportunity in an interview with the New York Times Magazine.
"I have nothing to add to the story," he said. "We've got a lot of people looking at the race. We'll see what happens."
That's far from the definite answer he gave in June when there was suspicion that he hosted a GOP fundraising event in Utah in order to test the waters for a presidential run.
"I'm not running for president," he declared on "Meet the Press," according to Yahoo! News. "I brought a number of the 2016 contenders here to meet with my fundraisers. If I had been running, I wouldn't be doing that.
He also gave a clear answer in January when asked by the New York Times if he'd consider a third presidential run, saying "Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no."
Likewise, during an interview on CNN's "The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer," he proclaimed "I'm not running for president. I made that clear the morning after the last loss," reports the Washington Post.
However, if he does decide to run, he promised to reveal more of his human side, which was portrayed in "Mitt," a documentary about his 2012 campaign.
"I was talking to one of my political advisers, and I said: 'If I had to do this again, I'd insist that you literally had a camera on me at all times," Romney said. "I want to be reminded that this is not off the cuff."
