  • GOP Voters Agree With Romney on Need for A New Face

    Republican voters agree with Mitt Romney that their party should look for someone new to run in 2016.

    In announcing his decision today not to seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, Romney said:  “I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee. In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.”
