Tagg Romney Bows Out Of Senate Race
Tagg Romney announced today that he would not be a candidate for Senate in Massachusetts:
Tagg Romney, son of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, said on Monday that he has decided against a run for Secretary of State John Kerry’s Senate seat in Massachusetts. His full statement, via the New York Daily News:
“I have been humbled by the outreach I received this weekend encouraging me to become a candidate for the US Senate. I love my home state and admit it would be an honor to represent the citizens of our great Commonwealth. 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, but I am hopeful that the people of Massachusetts will select someone of great integrity, vision, and compassion as our next US Senator.”
At this point, the Massachusetts GOP is fast running out of options. The one possible candidate is Mitt Romney’s former Lt. Governor Kerry Healey, but if she’s going to run she needs to move fast. In order to get on the ballot, a candidate needs to submit 10,000 signatures on a petition in the next 23 days.
Good. Had he run, he would’ve had to change his name too. ‘Tagg’ sounds like a Palin.
*giggle* At least he realized the ROI on running for office is 0.000001…
That trial balloon was going over like the Hindenburg anyway.
Ohh, and i was looking foward to watching him try to overturn the ban on assault rifles than his dad signed into law..
Simply the fact that the establishment party was so desperately willing to shove this trial balloon up in the air anyway confirms that they have no intent at all to change their product in the slightest – they just wanted a new-but-recognizable package to sell the same garbage with…
Recruit Alan Keyes!
My guess is the GOP won’t field a candidate or they will field a known from the start sacrificial lamb.
An opening for sibling Sagg or Tugg, perhaps?
I suppose this means that the gig on Dancing with the Stars is also a no-go?
Guys… You’re so MEAN !!!11!
Leave Tagg ALONEEEEeeeeeeeeeEEEeee !!!
(… laughed over this old chestnut: When Mitt heard of a draft, he bravely stepped forward and ran to France !)
Aside from Jan having to change her panties, I don’t think there was a single positive reaction to this brilliant idea…
@anjin-san: I think everyone’s reaction was:”ok, what clown thought up THIS idea?!”
I still think it was an ex-Romney campaign grifter wanting to see if Tagg was stupid enough (and egotistical enough) to use his $10M fund from Daddy to try to get public office.
So I guess we can say that at least one of Romney’s boys has at least a soupçon of common sense.
@Markey: I too would have liked to see a Romney family run for Senate in Massachusetts, because any serious attempt of his at winning would have required him to repudiate so much of Mitt’s (most recent) positions.
@Sejanus: *Romney family member*
Looks like Tagg is not “it.”

I can’t tell… are you talking about young Mr. Romney, or the latest Kennedy whelp?
