WASHINGTON, January 13, 2015– Last week, failed 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney publicly told major donors that he was ready for another shot at the White House in 2016. Promising to endorse the GOP nominee, in 2012, United States Senator Rand Paul (R- Ky.) endorsed Romney for the White House as promised. However, 4 years has passed and many believe Paul has White House plans of his own.
Strategists and pundits are suggesting that Romney’s 2016 strategy is to “run to the right of Jeb Bush and Chris Christie.”
On Sunday, Paul was questioned about Romney’s 2016 aspirations and “running to the right” strategy on Fox News’ John Gibson’s podcast. “If Mitt runs to the right of Jeb Bush he will still be to the left of the party, and that would a difficult spot to be in,” responded Paul.
