Republican Senator Rand Paul had an emphatic answer when asked what he thought of a possible Mitt Romney 2016 White House Bid: "No, no, no, no, never."
Over the past few weeks, rumors have swirled that Romney, the former GOP nominee in 2012, might launch another presidential campaign.
“I’m with Ann Romney on this one: No, no, no, no, never,” the Kentucky senator responded.
Paul added that Romney "would have made a great president," but suggested the former Massachusetts governor couldn't appeal to enough voters to secure the presidency.
“[T]o win the presidency you have the reach out and appeal to new constituencies," he told ABC News. "And I just don't think it's possible.”
“And if he thinks, ‘Well, I'm just going to change a few themes and next time I'll reach out to more people,’ I think it's a little more visceral than that,” Paul added.
