Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) predicts Mitt Romney will run for president again

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) predicted Monday that Mitt Romney will run for president again in 2016.

"I think he actually is going to run for president. He probably doesn't want me to say that," Chaffetz said on MSNBC's "Hardball with Chris Matthews." "A hundred times he says he's not. But Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he set out to do."

Chaffetz said he thinks Romney's been "proven right on a lot of stuff." He added, "I think he will be the next president of the United States."

Romney, who ran for president in 2008 and 2012, has repeatedly ruled out another bid.
