Tagg Romney Senate

Tagg Romney Considering Senate Run [Report]

Tagg Romney may be considering a Senate run to replace Scott Brown, who announced he will not run in the Massachusetts special election in June.

The election is being held to fill the seat vacated by the now-confirmed Secretary of State John Kerry. Buzz has surrounded the Romney family, with some calling for Ann to run, while others hope it will be Tagg.

The Boston Herald reports that Ron Kaufman, a longtime friend and aide to former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, stated, “I’ve had several people call me and ask about Ann Romney.”

But the wife of the 2012 Republican presidential nominee has never run for office. But her son, Tagg, is also being considered. The eldest son of the Romneys was a close campaign adviser to his father during last year’s election. He is also a very successful businessman.

Along with Ann and Tagg Romney, The Washington Post notes that other names being considered include former Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey and former Navy SEAL and businessman Gabriel Gomez.

Along with the announcement that Scott Brown, who was beaten in the November elections by Democrat Elizabeth Warren, former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld (R) also announced that he will not seek John Kerry’s vacated seat.

As for Tagg Romney, several Republicans have urged the businessman and father of six to run for the seat because he “already has statewide name recognition.” He could also “quickly ramp up the campaign infrastructure for a short, five-month race.”
