Mitt Romney said he's still being encouraged to run for president in 2016, even by a fellow Republican candidate already in the race.

But he isn't interested.

"Every day I get a call or letters," Romney told the Washington Post. "I go to church, I get harangued at church. 'Oh, you've got to run!' Look, I had one person who was running for president, and I won't give you the name."

That person, Romney told the newspaper, "called me and said, 'I hope you don't close the door. We may need you.' That's a person running for president! A candidate. A Republican. I'm not giving it a second thought."
