At least one prominent Republican lawmaker thinks two-time Republican presidential candidate and 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney will run again in 2016.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) told MSNBC's Chris Matthews that he thinks the "Draft Mitt" hype is real.
"I think he actually is going to run for president. He probably doesn't want me to say that," Chaffetz said during an interview on "Hardball" Monday night.
"A hundred times he says he's not, but Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he's set out to do. I think he's [been] proven right on a lot of stuff. I happen to be in the camp that thinks he's actually going to run, and I think he will be the next president of the United States."
Off and on since the debut of his Netflix documentary, "Mitt," speculation about a possible

...just when I was beginning to like Jason.
Deja Vu all over again.
Not with my vote.
Boston dog catcher? Salt Lake City vector control coordinator? Mayor of Detroit?
Team Romney already has it “in” for every
Remember Gov. Palin.
Remember the Speaker
Remember ... many more ...
Mitt I was for you last go-around. (basically because, Palin bowed out, and I didn’t really believe in the alternatives)
Now I just want you to go away.
Mitt go away. We have other candidates, who haven’t lost an election.
Who couldn’t see this coming? The Romney Redux.
The GOP should try running a conservative now and then. Ronald Reagan comes to mind.
Hello? Reagan is dead.
So the lying progressive Liberal is going to run again?
Look forward to another 4 years of Democratic control of our government.
The GOP-E seems determined to hand our country over to the Marxists.
Please God, no. Amen.
If the GOP establishment decides it’s going to be Romney again,then it’s Mitt part 2.They figure the idea of Hillary as president will get us all to vote for him.
NO, no, a thousand times no...
So basically its a choice between Clinton and Warren.
“If the GOP establishment decides its going to be Romney again,then its Mitt part 2.They figure the idea of Hillary as president will get us all to vote for him.”
Oh. Hell. No.
omgosh! no Romney, no Huckabee, no McCain... please go away!!!!!!!!!!!
What’s your point? I was citing Reagan as an example of a winner and one that the GOP should incorporate into their playbook. The GOP hasn’t done well running RINOs so maybe they should try running a conservative. Reagan is not around but his spirit still is.
That would be losing for a third time.
He's struck out twice... he wants an inning-ending third strikeout.
Well we know Reagan is dead. He didn’t mean literally that Reagan should run again. He meant that a conservative in the mold of Reagan should run for president.
