Former Governor Mitt Romney (R,Ma), who ran for President against Barrack Obama in 2012, is not supporting any one potential Presidential candidate in particular, but says that he will support whoever the Republicans nominate in 2016, according to ABC News, Jan. 24, 2014. The former Governor, who had a very tough go of it in the 2012 Presidential race, indicated in a series of recent interviews that he has a lot of confidence in former Governors Mike Huckabee (R,Ak) and Jeb Bush (R,Fl) should either one or both of them choose to run. Romney's partiality towards other governors may be due to the fact that he is a former governor himself; although Romney did not cite a reason for favoring the two governors.

Romney has mentioned other possible contenders that could win his support should the right conditions prevail. Some of the notables among those possible contenders are: Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Mike Pence, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, and Chris Christie, although only if he can live down the hot bed of controversy and federal inquiries in which he currently is mired.

As of November of 2013, Romney felt that Christie was one of the "strongest contenders. Now Christie is just one among many other people mentioned as possible contenders that Romney may or may not support in 2016.

Romney has yet to mention Ted Cruz, but at the same time, he hasn't ruled him out, saying that he is "not going to disqualify anybody."

Could Mitt Romney's endorsement or non-endorsement really make a difference in the outcome of the election in 2016? That is a question to be addressed over the next few months as both Republicans and Democrats mobilize and get ready not only for the 2016 election but also for the 2014 midterm elections. Nobody ever said that Democracy was going to be boring!
