Romney was defending New Jersey Governor Chris Christie from the latest accusations of “bullying,” when he began naming other possible candidates for 2016, including his running mate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), along with Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, Scott Walker and others. He did however indicate he would not be endorsing any candidates during the primary process.
“You didn’t mention Rand Paul and you didn’t mention Ted Cruz,” Neil Cavuto noted.
“Well, they represent different parts of the party,” Romney said. “I’ll give them a chance to express their views, but I think we’re going to be best if we can unify behind a leader of the party who represents as broad a portion of the party as possible.”
