Looks like 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will not be running for president in 2016 after all.

Mitt Romney will not run a third time for president, he will announce Friday on a conference call with donors, sources familiar with his plans told POLITICO.

“After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney will say on the call.

Top GOP sources said that Romney flinched at Jeb Bush’s strength in fundraising and early polling. Just Thursday, the former Florida governor poached a close Romney adviser who had run his 2012 Iowa campaign.

    That’s too bad. LieFest 2012 (aka the Romney/Ryan campaign) was pretty darn entertaining. “You didn’t build that!”, “Faded Obama posters”, and “Binders full of women”, etc. made for much internet hilarity.
