Romney's return to public life fuels speculation about 2016 presidential run

Speculations are rife that former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney might contest for 2016 presidential bid.

Romney's recent moves have fueled the speculation again. Last month, the former Massachusetts governor hosted a reunion of members of his 2012 campaign staff in Utah.

He has appeared on television news shows 12 times in the past six months, attacking President Barack Obama on various issues, including economy and Russia's annexation of Crimea on the Ukrainian peninsula.

According to newsmax, Romney hit on those same themes in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Caucus at National Harbor in Maryland.

He has also been stumping for other candidates in races across the country, including for Iowa state Senator Joni Ernst in her GOP primary bid to fill that state's open U.S. Senate seat.

Romney is also helping three Republicans in Idaho - Governor Butch Otter, Republican Mike Sampson, who face tea party challengers, and Senator Jim Risch, who also is in a primary battle, the report added. (ANI)
