Mitt Romney has told a small group of Republican donors that he's eyeing a third run at the White House.

The GOP's last presidential nominee held a private meeting with prominent donors in New York on Friday. He told the group he's seriously considering launching another presidential campaign.

That's according to a person who has direct knowledge of the meeting but was not authorized to speak publicly about the private discussions.

The gathering was held in the offices of Woody Johnson, a leading Romney donor in 2012 and owner of the New York Jets.

Romney has spent much of the last two years aggressively insisting he would not pursue a third White House bid. The meeting comes shortly after Jeb Bush began actively exploring a 2016 run.
