Former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, announced Wednesday that he will address the current state of the 2016 presidential race Thursday.
Romney, who has consistently ruled out a third campaign and has yet to endorse any candidate, will deliver his remarks at 11:30 a.m. ET at the University of Utah’s Hinckley Institute of Politics.
A source told CNN that the speech will not be an endorsement or a campaign announcement.
Romney, who has ramped up criticisms of Trump in the past few weeks, will reportedly use the address as an opportunity to encourage unity and civility within the 2016 race. He will also likely continue his attacks on Trump, the recent of which have centered around the front-runner’s tax returns.
A disqualifying & disgusting response by @realDonaldTrump to the KKK. His coddling of repugnant bigotry is not in the character of America.

The address comes on the same day as the 11th GOP debate, hosted by Fox News in Detroit, which will begin at 9:00 p.m. ET.
