As President Barack Obama once put it, “voting is the best revenge.”
To that end, more than six months after a stinging defeat in the 2012 presidential election, Mitt Romney plans to return to the national stage on behalf of candidates stumping for congressional seats in 2014 — many of whom will run directly against the president’s record.

As a first step, the former Republican presidential nominee plans to welcome 200 friends and supporters to a three-day summit next week that he will host at a Utah mountain resort.
He is considering writing a book and a series of opinion pieces, and has plans to campaign for 2014 candidates. But he is wary of overdoing it. “I’m not going to be bothering the airwaves with a constant series of speeches,” he told The Wall Street Journal, speaking from his home in La Jolla, Calif.
