Romney to resurface on TV next weekend

(MCT) — WASHINGTON — Almost four months after his presidential election defeat, Mitt Romney is planning a return to the national political stage.

The 2012 Republican nominee is scheduled to appear, with his wife, Ann, on “Fox News Sunday” next weekend.

It will be his first televised interview since the November election.

Romney also plans to speak next month at the Conservative Political Action Conference, a high-profile forum for conservative politicians.

In 2008, he chose the annual gathering of movement conservatives to announce his withdrawal from that year’s GOP presidential nomination contest. Four years later, on his way to become the nominee, he labeled himself, somewhat awkwardly, as “severely conservative” in a CPAC speech.

It’s not clear what Romney’s post-election reemergence might mean. Virtually no one in his party is clamoring for the former Massachusetts governor to make a third try for the presidency, and defeated nominees have seldom made successful comebacks. The last Republican to do so was Richard Nixon, who won the presidency in 1968 after losing in 1960.
