Will 2016 GOP nominee be a fresh upstart or a 2012 redux candidate?

July 8, 2013

They may have been “beat like baby seals” in the 2012 Republican primaries, but a little more than a year later, some of those losers are already sounding out their chances to try again in 2016.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. have either not ruled out the possibility or alluded to their interest in another bid.

Ana Navarro, a Republican Party strategist from Florida, said it is “crazy” that these also-rans are toying with a comeback after getting “beat like baby seals” by Mitt Romney in the 2012 race.

“It’s like these folks haven’t read the memo that’s sitting in their inbox,” Ms. Navarro said. “You lost. You got beat, some of you into unrecognizable pulps, by a guy who wasn’t even that good. We want to turn the freaking page.”

Ms. Navarro complimented former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty for moving on and landing a good job in the business world. “A lot of the others just seem to be partaking in magic mushrooms,” she said.
Those flirting with a redux this year are looking at a vastly tougher field, with several hotshot young senators pondering bids along with a cadre of heavyweight GOP governors and former governors.
