CONCORD - Some top Mitt Romney advisers will gather Friday in Boston.
A source close to the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee Thursday night confirmed the meeting to NH1. The gathering was first reported by National Review.
The meeting will come two weeks after Romney told some top supporters and donors, who were gathered in New York City, that he was seriously considering a third bid for the White House. Since then Romney's taken some serious steps towards launching a campaign, including a speech last Friday to top GOP leaders, who were gathered in San Diego for the Republican National Committee's annual winter meeting.
The meeting in Boston also comes one day after a new NH1 Pulse Poll indicated Romney with the support of 29% of people likely to vote in the 2016 New Hampshire Republican primary. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who's also seriously considering a White House run, was in second place, at 11%.
Romney and Bush met Thursday in Salt Lake City. The meeting was planned well before Romney's 2016 announcement.
