SALT LAKE CITY -- The next presidential election is still three years away, but it looks like a familiar face is the Republican front-runner: Mitt Romney.

Romney won't say for sure that he's planning on running for president, but he seems to be doing a lot of campaigning these days. He spends most of his time fundraising, campaigning and building alliances with party leaders.

"I pretty much plan from now until November of 2010, I will be working to help conservatives across the country," Romney says.

He insists he won't decide whether to seek the presidency until after the 2010 elections. In the meantime, his political action committee is giving out funds to Republicans across the country--which means they could owe him their support come 2012.
