2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney today addressed the American Conservative Union’s 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference.
“Of course, I left the race disappointed that we didn’t win. But I also left honored and humbled to have represented values we believe in and to speak for so many good and decent people. We’ve lost races before, and in the past, those setbacks prepared us for larger victories. It is up to us to make sure that we learn from my mistakes, and from our mistakes, so that we can win the victories those people and this nation depend upon.”
“Romney was so shocked and exhausted on election night, his address to CPAC today felt like the real concession speech,” Ari Shapiro, who covered the presidential campaign for National Public Radio, posted on Facebook today. Shapiro will be talking about that later today on NPR’s “All Things Considered.”
