Romney considering third run for White House

WASHINGTON (AP):

In a move that surprised his most loyal supporters and former staff, Mitt Romney told several donors last Friday he is seriously considering a third run for the White House.

It's a dramatic shift for the 2012 Republican presidential nominee after months of insisting his career in politics is over.

Should Romney follow through and enter the race, the former governor of Massachusetts, who made millions in private equity, would hardly be a lock to win his party's nomination for the second time.

He would join a field expected to feature more than a dozen Republicans with legitimate White House résumés, sitting governors and senators among them.

Romney, who ran unsuccessfully for president in 2008 and 2012, has repeatedly insisted he would not run again.
