Romney To Announce Presidential Run June 2 In Stratham, NH

STRATHAM, NH (CBS) – Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is about to officially join the race for president. Romney’s spokesperson confirmed to WBZ-TV that the announcement will come next Thursday in New Hampshire.

According to Romney’s Twitter account, he’ll make it official at a noontime barbecue at Scamman Farm farm in Stratham.

WBZ-TV Political Editor Jon Keller offers his insight

Romney is not the first candidate to officially throw his hat in the ring, but he will be the first this election cycle to make the announcement in New Hampshire. New Hampshire has the honor of holding first primary in the nation each election.

Romney finished second in New Hampshire during the 2008 Republican primary behind Sen. John McCain.

    Here is without a doubt , the most plastic politician on the planet. I would vote any party candidate before this fraud.

  • Keller @ Large: What You Need To Know About Mitt Romney « CBS Boston

    […] (CBS) – It may be the least surprising news of the week, or even the year, but it was news nonetheless last night when we got word that former governor Mitt Romney will make his presidential candidacy official […]


    Once again, it does not matter if the next President is Republican or Democrat. He or she will still suck. We will still be the policeman of the world, still be in Iraq and Afghanistan, still get involved in other countries business, still give away money to foreign nations when we need it here,still will not solve the illegal alien situation. It will just be a new face saying the “same old, same old”.

    Knowing Romeny’s history of flip-flopping there is every chance he’ll change his mind on this annoucement as well.

    If 100 people were asked who they would like to see run for the next presidential election, you would have 100 different names. I don’t think there’s ever been a president elected that everyone liked, and it isn’t going to happen with the next election either. Respect for the highest office has completely gone in this country, and unfortunately, it continues to send the message to other countries that we are a country divided. AmerIcans need to rally together to support the office of the president, and not continuously ridicule it. I did not vote for president Obama, but the last thing I want is to see him or any president fail because if he does, we all do.
