Tagg Romney Says He’s Not It
Mitt Romney’s son emailed ABC to tell them he’s not running for Senate.
“I have been humbled by the outreach I received this weekend encouraging me to become a candidate for the US Senate,” but the timing just doesn’t work, Romney said.
“I love my home state and admit it would be an honor to represent the citizens of our great Commonwealth,” Romney said. “However, I am currently committed to my business and to spending as much time as I can with my wife and children. The timing is not right for me.”
The Boston Herald reported Monday morning that the eldest son of Mitt and Ann Romney is considering a run in the special Senate election in Massachusetts now that former senator Scott Brown decided against a run last week.
But, two sources close to both Tagg and his father Mitt told ABC News earlier Monday it’s not going to happen. One consideration for Tagg Romney may be that his father lost the Bay State in last year’s presidential election by 23 points.
