Mitt Romney told a senior Republican he “almost certainly will” run for president and spent the weekend and Monday calling ex-aides, donors, and former foes. The Washington Post reports that Romney is intent on running to the right of Jeb Bush, on issues like immigration and taxes. On Friday, donors said that Romney told them “I want to be president” at a New York function. Since then, the former Massachusetts governor has contacted Paul Ryan (who said Monday he’s not running) and Newt Gingrich (who savaged him in the 2012 primaries), among others.
