Mitt Romney plans to provide an “update” on his intentions about a third bid for the White House, according to multiple reports Friday morning.
Supporters of the 2012 Republican presidential nominee received an email late Thursday to join a call Friday morning, led by Romney, for “an update,” Bloomberg News reported.
Romney is ready to make a decision on a bid, Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin reported.
“According to people familiar with the thinking of the two-time presidential candidate, Romney has now gathered all the information he needs to reach a conclusion about whether to run a third time,” Halperin reported.
Driving Romney’s decision would be whether he felt the GOP field is strong enough to defeat the Democrats in 2016, according to Bloomberg.
CNN Politics initially tweeted early Friday morning, “Romney to tell supporters Friday his decision about whether he’ll pursue a 2016 presidential campaign, @DanaBashCNN reports.”
