Mitt Romney Announces He Won’t Be Participating In Trump Moderated Debate

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is the latest GOP presidential hopeful to announce he will not be participating in the December 27th debate schedule to be moderated by Donald Trump.

Tuesday afternoon, Romney told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto that, without a doubt, he will not be a part of that debate.

no, I’m not participating. We have two debates in December I have agreed to participate in. The rest of the month is going to be spent campaigning, doing the political work you have to do to get the support of people in Iowa and New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, so we’ll be hitting the trail. I spoke with Donald Trump earlier today and indicated that we just can’t make this debate and we foe cuts on the other two we’ve got and some campaigning.

“He understood my perspective and wished me well,” Romney added.

“It wasn’t more colorful than that?” Cavuto wanted to know.
