House Speaker Paul Ryan, whom Romney tapped as his vice presidential running mate in 2012, immediately hailed his old partner's "unparalleled experience, conservative leadership and lifetime of service".
The upcoming mid-terms are likely to see more traditional Republicans such as Romney running alongside more populist, Trump-like candidates.
