Then presidential candidate Mitt Romney gestures as he campaigns in 2012 in Ohio. Romney will not run for president in 2016.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who is weighing a 2016 presidential bid, said Friday that he is “surprised” by Mitt Romney’s decision not to run for president, according to a story posted on The Hill’s website.

“I was a little bit surprised, because I imagine everybody he’s met in the last few years has said ‘I wish you were president,’ and you could certainly add my name to that list,” he said while appearing on “CNN Newsroom.” But I’ll leave it up to the pundits to figure all of this out. I’m just going to focus on what I’m trying to do.”
