Mitt Romney’s Family Want Him to Run for President

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, told CBS News’ John Dickerson his family is still encouraging him to enter the 2016 race.

“I got an email from one of my sons yesterday, saying ‘You gotta get in, Dad! You gotta get in!” Romney told the “Face the Nation” moderator at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado. However, Romney stressed he is not planning on running and that “the door is closed.”

Romney also made it clear that he still doesn’t plan on voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. “For me, it’s a matter of personal conscience, and I can’t vote for either of those two people,” he said. Continuing on, he said he did not believe the Republican Party would be forever changed by a Trump presidency and that it could survive any damages done.

This isn’t the first time Romney has been encouraged to enter the 2016 presidential race. Early in January, Romney reported he gets “harangued at church.” When he delivered a major speech blasting Trump and Clinton in March, he began by making sure the audience audience knew the speech as not going to be an announcement of his candidacy.
