(CNN) - Mitt Romney compared his presidential run to the highs and lows of a roller coaster ride - and, like all rides, it must come to an end.
"We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling ups and downs, but the ride ends and then you get off," he said in an interview with Fox News.
(CNN) - Many see tweeting as the future of communication - even the future of reporting – where stories are told one line at a time and spread through social channels faster than any newscast or newspaper.
But Mitt Romney's former top campaign strategist sees political pitfalls.
(CNN) - Mitt Romney's top campaign strategist has a simple message for soul-searching Republicans wondering how their presidential nominee lost: "I take full responsibility."
Stuart Stevens was a senior adviser for Romney and had a hand in a variety of campaign functions, including strategy and advertising.
(CNN) - President Barack Obama expressed gratitude last week to former President Jimmy Carter's grandson, who had a role in leaking secretly-recorded video of Mitt Romney's infamous "47%" comments, James Carter said Thursday on CNN.
Obama met James and his cousin, Georgia state Sen. Jason Carter, last week when the president was in Atlanta for a post-State of the Union visit.
"After (Jason) got his picture taken, he told Obama that I was the one that had found the 47% tape," James Carter said on CNN's "The Situation Room."
"Then Obama said, 'Hey, great, get over here.' And then he kind of half-embraced me, I want to say, put his arm around me, and we shook hands. He thanked me for my support, several times," he said.
Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney is returning to the political spotlight.
Two Republican sources confirm to CNN that the 2012 GOP presidential nominee will speak next month at the Conservative Political Action Conference. The event, known as CPAC, is one of the oldest and largest annual gatherings of conservative leaders and activists from across the country.
Washington (CNN) – At two distinct points during Tuesday's State of the Union address, President Barack Obama mentioned his 2012 presidential opponent, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
When Obama announced "a non-partisan commission to improve the voting experience in America," the president said he would appoint a top attorney from his campaign as well as one from "Governor Romney's campaign."
(CNN) – Tagg Romney, the son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, announced Monday that he will not run for the special Senate election in Massachusetts.
"The timing is not right for me, but I am hopeful that the people of Massachusetts will select someone of great integrity, vision, and compassion as our next US Senator," Romney, 42, said in a statement.
(CNN) – Nearly a month after last year's presidential election, Mitt Romney's campaign donated almost $90,000 to the American Red Cross, federal election filings showed Friday.
The donation also came a month after Superstorm Sandy pummeled the East Coast, coinciding with the final week of the presidential contest. Both candidates were forced to put their campaigns on hold briefly as residents of New York and New Jersey assessed the widespread damage and destruction.
(CNN) - The Republican National Committee ended the election cycle with nearly $4.7 million in the bank, unlike President Barack Obama, Republican Mitt Romney and the Democratic National Committee - all in the red.
RNC chairman Reince Priebus said the committee's fundraising was "truly impressive" and that the committee raised $2.3 million in December, to close the year with the surplus - something the committee could not say after the 2010 midterm elections, under previous leadership.
(CNN) - Mitt Romney may have lost the presidential race to President Barack Obama, but he can find some comfort in knowing that he beat at least 68 other Americans who received votes for president in November. In fact, 2.2 million voters cast their ballots for someone other than Obama or Romney, comprising 1.7% of the total vote.
Among those who received votes: Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson placed third with nearly 1.3 million votes; Green Party nominee Jill Stein placed fourth with more than 469,000 votes; and former U.S. Rep. Virgil Goode, the Constitution Party nominee, placed fifth with more than 122,000 votes.
