Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer is Confident Mitt Romney Won’t Run in 2016

Montana’s former governor, Democrat Brian Schweitzer says he’s so confident Mitt Romney is not running for president in 2016, he’s willing to put $100 down on that proposition.

Schweitzer, who is mulling his own bid in 2016, tells Business Insider that, when he attended Romney’s retreat this past weekend in Park City, he got the distinct impression Romney was out.

“Mitt Romney is not running for president or anything else. I spoke to some of the family and they said some of the things that my family tells me. They don’t want it, they don’t like it, and they’re not going to do it again,” Schweitzer, a Democrat pondering his own potential presidential bid, told Business Insider Monday. “If I were a betting man, I’d give you 4-to-1 odds.”

Schweitzer then offered up $100 as terms for this hypothetical bet, noting $1,000 would be too much for him. That’s quite a contras with Romney, who infamously tried to bet a rival $10,000 at a Republican primary debate in 2011.
