Gag me with a chainsaw: Romney moves to reassemble campaign apparatus for 2016 | 12 Jan 2015 | Mitt Romney is moving quickly to reassemble his national political network, spending the weekend and Monday calling former aides, donors and other supporters...

His aggressive outreach over the past three days indicates that Romney's declaration of interest to a group of donors in New York Friday was more than the release of a trial balloon but rather was the start of a concerted push by the 2012 nominee to be an active participant in the 2016 campaign.
