Washington (CNN) – Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will host a policy retreat in Park City, Utah this June "to hear from political, business and other thought leaders," according to an invitation obtained by CNN.
As Romney continues to plot his post-election future, the retreat further signals he’s serious about staying active on policy fronts or political arenas.
(CNN) – Post-mortems written after the 2012 campaign focused on a variety of Republican shortcomings: underwhelming television ads, an outdated voter contact model, and a message that was out-of-step with the changing face of America.
Overlooked in the aftermath of Mitt Romney's loss, however, was the fact that Democrats throttled Republicans in the critical practice of opposition research - the age-old tactic of gathering negative information about one's opponent and pushing it into public view through the press or through paid media.
(CNN) – The next wave of Republican leaders can be found in the nation's statehouses, last year's GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney told a receptive crowd of conservative activists Friday.
In his first major speech since last November's defeat, Romney cited governors in traditionally Democratic states as examples of effective conservative leadership who could make inroads nationwide. Romney himself served as governor of Massachusetts before making bids for president in 2008 and 2012.
(CNN) – South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will introduce Mitt Romney at a gathering of conservative activists on Friday, a GOP source told CNN.
Haley, who endorsed Romney early in last year's Republican primary contest, wasn't previously listed as a featured speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual confab of activists that's taking place this week at a resort just outside Washington in suburban Maryland.
(CNN) - The man who filmed Mitt Romney making the now-infamous "47%" comments is speaking out about why he secretly-recorded the GOP presidential candidate at a fundraiser last May.
Scott Prouty, a bartender who worked for a catering company, said he was inspired to do so after a friendly encounter with former President Bill Clinton.
Washington (CNN) - The caption could read: "A party ain't a party till Mitt Romney eats his fluffernutter cake."
On Tuesday, Romney had his cake – and ate it too – as he celebrated his birthday. Eldest son Tagg Romney put out pictures of his father, apparently in full office party mode, on the social media site Instagram.
Washington (CNN) – Scott Romney, the elder brother of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, is considering running for the Senate seat that will be vacated by retiring Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan next year.
"He's interested and seriously looking at it," a friend of the Romney family told CNN Political Director Mark Preston on Friday. The Romneys' father, the late George Romney, was governor of the state in the 1960s.
(CNN) - Ann Romney, the wife of former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, confirmed in an interview that she considered an offer to join ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," but ultimately declined.
"I would've loved to have done it, and I am turning 64, and I started thinking about it," she said on "Fox News Sunday." "I'm not really as flexible as I should be."
