Mitt Romney said Thursday he planned to formally join the GOP race for president during an appearance next week in New Hampshire, a state that is central to his White House strategy.
"Making it official next week at the Scamman Farm in New Hampshire," Romney wrote on his Facebook page.
The former Massachusetts governor has been plotting a comeback since losing the GOP presidential nomination to Sen. John McCain in 2008. His advisers see New Hampshire as the launching pad for a presidential bid and they tentatively are watching Iowa, the early GOP caucus where Romney was to visit Friday for the first time this year.
Advisers said he would formally announce his candidacy during a noon barbecue at a Stratham, N.H., farm that is a must-visit stop for GOP contenders.

Not wanting any of the leftover slices to go to waste, Romney sent the remaining pies to where else but President Obama’s Chicago reelection headquarters.
