“I can’t imagine running right now. And I’m glad I’m not in the race,” Romney said on the morning news program. “A lot of people are battling their way ahead. I think the American people wanted to see a new face. That’s a good thing. And I can’t imagine how I would be doing on that particular stage, but I salute them for their willingness to get in and fight for the things they believe in.”
Romney mentioned that there were a number of GOP hopefuls in the race who have “positive attributes” including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.
