(Photo courtesy Associated Press)(KSL News) Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says he probably won't make another run for the nation's highest office.

According to, Romney said, "I think it's quite unlikely that I would run for office again. …I gave this my best effort. My experience in politics is that the window opens rarely. It opened for me. I stepped through it, got on the stage and did my darnedest to win the nomination. John McCain was successful and I was not."

The Web site says Romney told Dennis Roddy of the Pittsburg-Post Gazette that he'd prefer to contribute outside electoral politics.
