Boston: Mitt Romney spent the past six years running for president. After his loss to President Barack Obama on Tuesday, he'll have to chart a different course.

The initial plan is to spend time with his family. Romney has five adult sons and 18 grandchildren; a 19th is on the way.

His wife, Ann, recently said her husband absolutely will not run again for president. If he did, it would be his third time.
