Mitt Romney may not have laid his presidential aspirations to rest.

The 2012 Republican nominee told donors in Manhattan Friday that he is considering another bid for the White House in 2016, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.

“Everybody in here can go tell your friends that I’m considering a run,” Romney said according to Politico.

Romney garnered 47.2 percent of the vote in the 2012 presidential election, losing to President Obama by some 5 million votes.

A 2016 run would be Romney’s third attempt in three presidential elections.
