“Completely. Not only Mitt and I are done, but the kids are done,” Ann Romney said. “Done. Done. Done.”
Asked whether there were any circumstances under which she would encourage the former Massachusetts governor to attempt another run — or if she would support him if he wanted to run — she said she hadn’t “been pushed to that point mentally,” but that they would make the decision together.
She reeled off a long list of what she called “really interesting” potential Republican contenders, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and her husband’s 2012 choice for vice president, Rep. Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin.
The Romneys are planning to launch a research facility that will focus on curing Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, and brain tumors.
“I want people to sign up for the experiments that we are doing; to sign up for the studies,” Romney, who has lived with MS for 16 years, said. “I want people to have hope that this is going to help, not just them, but future generations.”
