Romney announced on Friday that he would not make a third run for the White House, and NBC’s Chuck Todd said Romney was Jeb Bush’s preferred candidate in 2007 before Romney flipped on immigration. Todd added that “some of the interest in the race was personal” Jeb Bush “never forgave” Romney for using “immigration as a wedge issue against McCain.”

“He wouldn’t be shy about criticizing Romney. He thought he is pandering too much,” Todd said. “And that continued through 2012. And that’s really what drove Jeb away from Romney, it is the way Romney ran against immigration reform.”
