WASHINGTON, January 14, 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.
United States Senator Ted Cruz (R- Texas) has been flirting with the idea of mounting a 2016 run for the White House. On Monday, Cruz responded to reporters regarding the idea of Romney 2016.
“There are some who believe that a path to Republican victory is to run to the mushy middle, is to blur distinctions,” Cruz said. “I think recent history has shown us, that’s not a path to success. It doesn’t work. It’s a failed electoral strategy. I very much agree with President Ronald Reagan that the way we win is by painting with bold colors and not pale pastels and I think that’s gonna be a debate Republicans are gonna have over the next two years.”
“It is certainly a debate that I intend to participate in vigorously,” Cruz added.
On Sunday, Senator Rand Paul (R- Ky.) delivered his own remarks regarding Romney’s 2016 declaration.
