    With just a few weeks to go until the GOP convention, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney says hes still getting some encouragement from his family to jump into the 2016 race for the White House. My wife and kids wanted me to run again this time, Mr. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, said this week at the Aspen Ideas Festival. Ive got some kids I got an email from one of my sons yesterday saying you gotta get in, Dad you gotta get in, he said....

    Former Romney Adviser on Trump Alternative: Until Donald Trump Has the NominationAll Things Are Possible By NOAH FITZGEREL Jun 24, 2016, 5:01 AM ET There remain deep rumblings inside the establishment of the Republican Party about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. This weeks episode of ABCs "Powerhouse Politics" podcast paints a picture in which the Republican National Committee may focus its efforts on down-ticket races to hedge the risk of losing the White House in November to presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, leaving a Trump operation with little infrastructure of its own scrambling to catch up. Noting the frustration...

    The Obama administration said Tuesday it will herd uninsured Americans into Obamacare plans this fall by targeting young adults and working with the IRS to root out people who paid a penalty for lacking coverage last year. Officials said people who were fined under the Affordable Care Acts individual mandate can expect to receive a paper notice that explains their coverage options on the laws web-based exchanges. The state of Massachusetts is already working with its revenue agency to locate the uninsured, and the Obama administration said those efforts appeared to be working.

    Let's talk about what racism really is, and why this guy's charge is so completely absurd. Mitt Romneys latest attempt to discourage people from supporting Donald Trump is to say he will inspire trickle-down racism. Its a catchy soundbite, but its not true. And! I didnt want to do this, but now I feel compelled to illustrate what racism is and is not. This nation has come a long way since the Emancipation Proclamation took effect on January 1, 1863.

It is now nauseatingly obvious why he failed to defeat Barack Obama after his trifling first term, and why the wealthy GOPe selected him in 2012 as one of our pre-approved candidates.

    On Friday afternoon, at an exclusive Republican donor retreat here hosted by Mitt Romney, frustration boiled over. During an off-the-record question-and-answer session with House Speaker Paul Ryan, Meg Whitman, the billionaire Hewlett Packard chief executive officer, confronted the speaker over his endorsement of Trump. Whitman, a major GOP giver who ran for California governor in 2010, compared Trump to historical demagogues like Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini and wanted to know how the speaker could get behind him. At another discussion session during the day, which featured top Romney alumni Stuart Stevens and Matt Rhoades, Ana Navarro, a Republican contributor...

John Kasich (R-Ohio), the last two candidates to drop out of the race against Trump. "Ted Cruz was basically praising Donald Trump through the whole process," Romney told discussion host and CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer. And Kasich was in well after the time...

Trump surged to 9.9 million votes, according to totals that include Tuesdays preliminary results across the northeast and could rise further as the final votes are counted. Thats already more than 100,000 more than Romney earned in the entire 2012 primary season and tens of thousands more than John McCain earned in 2008.

A startling 62 percent of Republican primary voters view him unfavorably, the poll found, and 10 percent said they were not sure. That net favorability of minus-34 percentage points is a dramatic drop from polling conducted prior to 2016. In January 2015, for example, Romney was seen...

Appearing at a Univision "Meet the Candidate" forum, Romney touted his own "experience in healthcare reform."

That law mandated that all residents carry health insurance or pay a tax penalty and that insurers not discriminate against individuals with pre-existing...

By contrast, the party's nominee in 2012, Mitt Romney, didnt reach 49 percent in a poll until mid-April of that year. As YouGovs William Jordan noted, Romneys highest polling number prior to that was 40 percent, which he achieved once in mid-January 2012 and once at the end of February.

Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney is going “full Mississippi” with claims about Donald Trump’s taxes.  It doesn’t matter that there is no basis for the ridiculous assertions – the truth and/or facts are not what matters when you go “full Mississippi”…. it’s a strategy! The absolute worst thing Donald Trump could do is to respond to it.  Responding to the provocation is exactly what they want.  Dismiss it like you would swat an annoying gnat. Mitt Romney – “The reason that I think there’s a bombshell in there is because...

    2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Wednesday on Fox News there is good reason to believe there is a "bombshell" to be found in Donald Trump's back taxes. Asked by host Neil Cavuto why he hadn't officially backed a Republican for the 2016 nomination, Romney said he would like to see the back taxes from several of the candidates. Taxes were a sore spot for Romney in 2012, with then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) publicly accusing him of not even paying them. "This will give us a real sense of whether these people are on the up...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will endorse Sen. Marco Rubio, the Huffington Post reports. The details of the endorsement are being worked out. It's ironic since Romney, who was largely an absentee governor in the last nine months of his administration, is endorsing someone who didn't bother showing up for work in the Senate that much. "Romney spent the day in Utah on Saturday and could potentially be in position to bestow his blessing upon Rubio before Tuesday's Nevada Republican caucuses-a contest that Romney won easily in both 2008 and 2012."

Marco Rubio (R-FL), in a final effort to defeat Donald Trump after the billionaire took early states in New Hampshire and South Carolina by storm.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee may make the move before Tuesday's caucuses in Nevada. Rubio is the party's leading establishment candidate, but he has trailed Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in early primaries and caucuses
