Mitt Romney held meetings with donors in New York this week that left one attendee convinced he is running for president again in 2016.
A member of Romney's inner circle who spoke to Business Insider said the former governor of Massachusetts traveled to New York City on Monday where he met with key financial backers of his past campaigns to lay the groundwork for a 2016 White House bid.
The source, who was at one of the meetings, said other attendees included developer Stephen Ross, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, and hedge funders Julian Robertson and Paul Singer.
A representative for Romney did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the meetings from Business Insider.
Oh please, please let Mr. 47 Percent run again. This is a guy who lost by six points to Barack Obama, supposedly "the worst President America has ever had". Republicans despise him, and his presence in the 2016 contest will only help the Democrats.
Please remind everyone once again why the GOP platform is terrible and that Republicans only care about millionaires. That's a great idea.
