NEW YORK, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Will Mitt Romney make a third run for the White House? His wife, Ann, didn't say he would. But she didn't rule it out either.

In an interview with Fox News host Neil Cavuto, Ann Romney said her husband would be unlikely to run if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush did.

But if Bush bows out?

"Well, we will see, won't we, Neil?" she said. "I think Jeb probably will end up running, myself... He's probably looking at it very carefully."

She said the 2012 Republican nominee had "no plans at this point" to run again, especially as he and Bush would likely draw from the same base. Instead, she said she would "love to see more women," such as governors Nikki Haley of South Carolina or Susana Martinez of New Mexico, run for the GOP nomination.

For his part, Mitt Romney has repeatedly said he does not plan to run again, but noted that "circumstances can change."
