Ann Romney backtracks on Mitt running in 2016: 'Never say never'

Since saying rather definitively in an interview with the Los Angeles Times last week that the Romneys are "done" with seeking the presidency, Ann Romney has changed her tune, slightly. "You know, you never do say never," she said on CNN's New Day.

Republicans looking for a Romney repeat run shouldn't get their hopes up, though. Ann Romney said that after the ballots were counted and Mitt accepted defeat to Obama in 2012, the Romney family "knew it was just done," and that's "where we still are."

"We're concerned and we are still going to be involved, but not in that way," she told the Washington Post. "Honestly, we'll have to see what happens. But we have no plans and I don't imagine circumstances changing."
