[Ed. – Weld? Seriously? Always with his pulse on the finger, the Mittster. H/t: Ace.]
With just a few weeks to go until the GOP convention, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney says he’s still getting some encouragement from his family to jump into the 2016 race for the White House.
“My wife and kids wanted me to run again this time,” Mr. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, said this week at the “Aspen Ideas Festival.”
“I’ve got some kids — I got an email from one of my sons yesterday saying ‘you gotta get in, Dad — you gotta get in,’ ” he said.
Mr. Romney reiterated that he doesn’t plan to vote for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the fall, but he said he doesn’t think an independent candidate can win. …
Mr. Romney said he wishes former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, the Libertarian Party’s vice presidential nominee, was at the top of that ticket.
