MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Mitt Romney, who recently toyed with a third run for president before dropping out, will deliver the 2015 commencement address at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Romney was the Republican party nominee in 2012, losing to President Barack Obama. He also ran for the nomination in 2008 but lost to John McCain.

The former Massachusetts governor vowed after 2012 that he was done with presidential politics then surprised the political establishment in January when he told supporters he was considering another run. He announced last week he would not take another shot.

Romney, who has a home in New Hampshire, will speak at Saint Anselm on May 17. The liberal arts college hosts the “Politics & Eggs” series of forums for potential presidential candidates, political analysts and commentators.
