Romney in 2016 = GOP Suicide

By Chidike Okeem

The start of 2015 means that the field for the presidential election that is set to occur next year is starting to form. Interestingly, according to reports, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney wants to run again, after winning the Republican nomination in 2012 and losing the general election to the incumbent office holder. If Romney wins the Republican nomination again, it would say more about the Republican Party than it would about Romney. A Republican Party that decides to take a third presidential run by Romney seriously would prove that it is not interested in being a governing party. Moreover, if Romney wins the nomination in 2016, Republicans cannot realistically complain about being called the party of plutocrats.
