Mitt Romney Didn’t Know Rand Paul Was Running for President

Mitt Romney, who became president last week after his NCAA bracket demolished former President Barack Obama’s, was unaware on Fox News Sunday this morning that Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was in the race for the 2016 GOP nomination.

“We’ll take what he says today [on foreign policy], and that’ll be the platform he runs with as a candidate for president, if he gets in the race,” Romney said.

“Well, no, he’s in the race,” host Chris Wallace said. “He got in last week.” Paul and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) are the only two major candidates to have officially declared.

“I haven’t kept my scorecard as to who’s actually officially in, as to who’s just kind of in,” Romney said. If NCAA brackets are any indication, you can just sorta guess.
