SAN DIEGO - Mitt Romney, the 2012 US Republican presidential nominee, said on Friday night he was giving "serious consideration" to his near-term future, his latest signal that he is gearing up for another White House run.
Romney, who would be making his third presidential bid should he choose to run again, said his wife, Ann, had been asked in recent days about the prospect of another Romney presidential campaign.
"She believes people get better with experience," Romney said in a speech to Republican activists. "And heaven knows I have experience running for president."
Romney also ran in 2008 but lost the Republican nominating contest that year to Senator John McCain.
