It appears as if 2012 was the final time American voters will get to see Mitt Romney run for president.

In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Romney was asked whether he would consider a third go-round at the White House. The former Massachusetts governor sounded pretty certain that he would not.

“Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no,” Romney told the paper. “People are always gracious and say, ‘Oh, you should run again.’ I’m not running again.”

Romney’s remarks came after a screening of his Netflix original documentary “MITT,” which is set to premiere on Jan. 24 at midnight EST. He added that despite the decision not to run again, the 2012 campaign was a “great experience” for him.

“It was just a fabulous thing to experience, and that’s the one thing in the film that I felt you can’t communicate — was just how honored you feel, what an extraordinary experience it is,” Romney said. “But that being said, I loved it.”

Romney has already weighed in on the list of Republicans he thinks would be electable in the 2016 presidential race. Among the names on the list he told NBC’s “Meet The Press” in November 2013: his vice presidential candidate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
