WASHINGTON, March 2 (UPI) -- Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president in 2012 who has remained quiet about his party's raucous race this cycle, will make a speech about it Thursday.

NBC reports Romney does not plan to endorse a candidate in the race, but will speak more generally about the state of the campaign, which has frequently devolved into taunting and wild allegations.

When Romney has spoken about the 2016 campaign, he has been harshly critical of the party's front-runner, Donald Trump. Recently, Romney called on Trump to release his tax returns to show voters he's serious about transparency. At the time Romney, wondered whether there was a "bombshell" hidden in the billionaire's financial dealings. Trump has refused, saying he is being audited by the IRS, and his personal finances need to remain private for now.

The speech is scheduled to take place Thursday in Utah.
