Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) told HuffPost Live today he would not run for president if Mitt Romney decided to run again.
HuffPost Live sent out the transcript:
Paul Ryan: “I wouldn’t if he were. I would support Mitt. If he were to run, I would not. But I don’t even know if I’m going to either myself. That’s something I’m going to decide in 2015.”

Ryan also told HuffPost Live that the country should “take Mitt at his word” that he is not planning another campaign.
Ryan: “[Romney] thinks his time has come and gone. He wants other people to get into the race. I think a lot of people, especially on our side of the aisle — I am one of those, by the way — think he would be a fantastic candidate. I would like to see him run again, but I think he’s pretty clear that it’s definitely not his intention. He’s not trying to start this buzz, he’s not trying to mount another comeback.”
