Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will formally declare his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination today. Romney will announce his candidacy for president during a barbecue in Stratham, New Hampshire.
A presidential candidate in 2008, Romney launched his exploratory committee for the 2012 race last April in an announcement in a YouTube video. Romney and other candidates have made New Hampshire a focus of their campaigns because that state holds the first presidential primary.
Romney will join a group of announced candidates for the Republican presidential nomination including Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Tim Pawlenty. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum will announce his candidacy on Monday.
