Mitt Romney Insists ‘My Time Has Come And Gone’

Mitt Romney on Sunday inevitably denied any plans to run for president in 2016.

“I’ve spoken on this topic so many times, I don’t have anything new to add,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I’m not running, and I’m not planning on running.”

In August, Romney said that he wasn’t running in 2016, but added that “circumstances can change,” opening up speculation that he could make yet another bid for the White House.

Fox host Chris Wallace quizzed Romney, and asked him if circumstances could actually change.

“Chris, I’m not going to add to the story. I’ve had nothing new for you,” Romney responded. “My time has come and gone.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
