  • Carly Fiorina is the latest of 2016ers to announce a meeting she has arranged with the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 presidential candidate
  • The meeting will mark the latest sit-down Romney has had with a 2016 Republican presidential hopeful

Washington (CNN)Carly Fiorina is the latest Republican 2016 candidate to announce a meeting she has arranged with former Massachusetts governor and 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

At a campaign event in New Hampshire on Thursday, Fiorina told a woman who lives in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, that she was planning on taking a quick venture there this weekend, where Romney has a lakeside summer home.
"Just so you know, I'm coming to Wolfeboro Saturday morning to have a meeting with him," Fiorina said to the woman in the presence of a CNN reporter. "I'm in and out."
    The meeting will mark the latest sit-down Romney has had with a 2016 Republican presidential hopeful.
    On Monday, Romney had lunch with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his wife, Columba, and over the weekend, he hosted New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for a sleepover on July 3.
    Romney, who has said he won't seek the GOP's nomination next year, has become a notable counsel to the Republican Party and its presidential candidates. But despite the number of meetings with potential nominees, Romney most likely won't endorse any of the candidates anytime soon.
    Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney's longtime adviser and close associate, has told CNN that the most likely scenario "is that he will remain neutral until we have a presumptive nominee."
