Over the past few months, Mitt Romney has repeatedly stated he will not run as a third-party candidate in 2016, but that hasn’t stopped at least one of his children from hoping that maybe, somehow, his dad will be the next President of Watching the World Burn.
Acknowledging that at this point he could only enter the race as a spoiler candidate, the former Republican nominee now representing the party’s black bloc said that his family asked him late in the GOP primary to “do it again,” The Hill reports.
“My wife and kids wanted me to run again this time,” said Romney at the Aspen Ideas Festival on Tuesday. “I got an email from one of my sons yesterday, saying ‘You gotta get in, Dad. You gotta get in.’”
