Romney 2016?

Ann Romney waves off campaign rumors: 'Mitt and I are done... Done. Done. Done.'

Ann Romney said her husband, former Massachusetts governor and two-time Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, is not considering a third run for the White House.

"Done. Completely. Not only Mitt and I are done, but the kids are done," she told the Los Angeles Times on Monday. "Done. Done. Done."

The Romneys were in Boston on Tuesday to launch the Ann Romney Center for Neurological Diseases, "a research facility that will focus on finding cures and new treatments for Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's disease (known as ALS), Parkinson's disease and brain tumors," the LA Times reports.

But Mitt's wife still had to answer questions about the possibility of a 2016 run. She said while any decision to reassess her husband's lack of campaign plans would be made together as a couple, she hadn't "been pushed to that point mentally" yet.

As for which Republicans Ann Romney does expect to make a bid for the presidency in 2016? She said former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan could all be contenders.
