As Mitt Romney is poised to give a speech Thursday on the state of the 2016 race, we’ll have to see if he sticks to the declaration he made just five months ago. Appearing at the Washington Ideas Forum in September, Romney unequivocally said he would support the Republican nominee for president. When asked if he would support Donald Trump, Romney responded, “I will support the Republican nominee. I don’t think that’s going to be Donald Trump.” His statement awkwardly ended there. “Why not?” he was asked. “My party, historically, has nominated a mainstream conservative,” Romney replied. He flatly said “no” when he was asked if he would still get in the race.
Given this, it’ll be interesting to see what Mitt says later today..
