Romney steps forward in both red and blue states to fill role as charismatic lead for GOP

While he lost to Barack Obama in 2012, Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney is hitting the stump for Republicans this fall. In recent months, in which Democratic candidates are keeping their distance from an unpopular president, Romney has emerged as one of the Republican Party's most in-demand campaign surrogates.

Mitt Romney says he isn't interested in a third presidential run in 2016. His recent moves have his supporters yearning for him to give it a go and arguing that he would be a stronger candidate than last time.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Over three days in mid-August, Romney will campaign for GOP Senate and gubernatorial candidates in West Virginia, North Carolina and Arkansas. He isn't slowing down: Romney is also planning visits to the presidential swing states of Colorado and Virginia.

He won't be idle for the month of October, either. Senate hopefuls in Iowa and New Hampshire are eager for him to return before November's midterms, while Romney is weighing trips to other Senate battlegrounds.

"Democrats don't want to be associated with Barack Obama right now, but Republicans are dying to be associated with Mitt Romney," Spencer Zwick, a longtime Romney confidant who chaired his national finance council.

"Candidates, campaigns and donors in competitive races are calling saying, 'Can we get Mitt here?' They say, 'We've looked at the polling, and Mitt Romney moves the needle for us.' That's somewhat unexpected for someone who lost the election," Zwick added.

Since the Republican Party doesn't have a consensus leader, or a popular elder statesman like Democratic former president Bill Clinton, Romney is stepping forward in both red and blue states to fill that role for the GOP.

"There's a pretty big void in the party right now for national leaders, and Romney's in a unique position, having been around the track, to help fill that void," Scott Reed, a veteran GOP strategist who oversees the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's political operation said.

Romney says he isn't interested in a third presidential run in 2016. His recent moves have his supporters yearning for him to give it a go and arguing that he would be a stronger candidate than last time.

Asked whether he and other Republican officials are coalescing around Romney as a 2016 favorite, Mead said: "There is a movement afoot? I'd tell him, 'Governor Romney, people here in Wyoming and around the country would encourage you to take another look at it.'?"
