11 Rand Paul Republican 9-Jan “If the ideas are resonating — if the ideas look like they have a chance – then it’s much more likely that I’ll make a go of this. If it looks like we’re at 1 percent, we’re not in the top tier, and it’s just going to be a quixotic sort of run, then I think it’s not something I want to do just for educational purposes. I would do it to be in to win. And that’s a decision we’re going to have to make later in the spring.” 3
12 Mike Huckabee Republican 3-Jan "I feel compelled to ascertain if the support exists strongly enough for another Presidential run. So as we say in television, stay tuned!" 4

16 Scott Walker Republican 16-Dec Walker says Bush’s action “doesn’t affect me one way or another.” Walker says whether he decides to run for president will be “based upon me, my family and my state and what I may or may not be able to do for my country not based on anyone else who may or may not be in the race.” 3
17 Ben Carson Republican 7-Nov "starting to think about it" 3
18 Marco Rubio Republican 7-Jan “I believe that if I decide to run for president, we have a path to be a very competitive candidate, and ultimately to win,” Rubio said. 3
19 Ted Cruz Republican 30-Oct “But if we run another candidate in the mold of a Bob Dole or a John McCain or Mitt Romney, we will end up with the same result which is millions of people will stay home on Election Day … and if we run another candidate like that, Hillary Clinton will be the next president,” 3

22 Carly Fiorina Republican 9-Jan HH: On a day like today, does it make you rethink even thinking about running for president given the complexity, the burden, the sorrow that goes with that office? CF: No, in fact just the opposite. Because I think we have to have leaders with the moral clarity and courage to call evil by its name. And I do not think we have enough of that leadership. We certainly don’t have it in the White House today, and we don’t have it with our former secretary of state. And the longer we resist calling evil by its name, and doing what is necessary to combat it, the worse this will get. 4
23 Mitt Romney Republican 9-Jan “People ask if I really want to be president,” Romney said, according to a source in the room. “Yeah, I want to be president.” 3
24 Mike Pence Republican 7-Jan “It’s not on our agenda. It’s not our focus. I am completely focused on the future of the people of Indiana and this session of the General Assembly. We’ll let decisions about my future wait until the spring.” 2
25 Rob Portman Republican 2-Dec "I don't think I can run for president and be an effective senator at the same time," Portman said. "While I appreciate the encouragement I have received from many to run for president, my focus will remain on Ohio and running for re-election to the Senate in 2016." 1
