One of Mitt Romney’s Biggest Backers Thinks He’s Going to Run in 2016

Anthony Scaramucci of SkyBridge Capital, who served as Romney's national finance co-chair in 2012, says he thinks Mitt Romney will end up on the GOP ballot in 2016.

During his regular bit as a contributor for Fox Business Channel, Scaramucci says he's betting that Romney will jump into the race if other favorites like former Florida Governor Jeb Bush decline to run.

From Business Insider:

"I don’t think he’s 100% made the decision," Scaramucci said in a Fox Business interview. "But a couple of factors could happen: If Gov. Jeb Bush drops out or declares that he's not going to run, I think that puts Gov. Romney in … position."

Scaramucci, the Romney campaign's ex-national finance co-chair, also praised the former Massachusetts governor for maintaining a "very strong following" among Wall Street bigwigs like himself.

"I can tell you right now. The governor has a very strong following, including myself. And he'd be my No. 1 draft pick," he said.
