The 2012 GOP nominee is talking about the possibility with his family members, the network reported, according to a source familiar with transition discussions.

But a decision will likely not be made until after the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday reported the president-elect is leaning toward nominating Romney to serve as secretary of State, with Rudy Giuliani another top contender.

Trump considers Romney to be the prototypical choice for the job, according to the report.

Still, during Trump's presidential campaign, Romney often attacked the president-elect and was a face of the Never Trump movement. He called the president-elect a "con man," a "phony" and a "fraud." 

And Trump also criticized Romney for "choking" in his loss to President Obama.
