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.
