Political strategist Karl Rove says there’s no front-runner for the Republican Party’s 2012 presidential nomination.

The Fox commentator and former top political adviser to George W. Bush says it’s good for the party that there will be a contest featuring a long list of 2012 contenders.

Those he mentioned by name included former Govs. Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney.

He said the contenders have about 15 months to demonstrate they have the ability and support to successfully run for president and hold the office.

Rove spoke to about 500 people attending a Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce luncheon Tuesday.

Two protesters yelled briefly at Rove during his speech before being escorted out. Rove didn’t interrupt his talk.
