Mitt Romney's Son Tagg Romney May Run for U.S. Senate

| by Michael Allen

Tagg Romney, son of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, may run for John Kerry's recently vacated U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts.

Kerry recently became the new Secretary of State, following Hillary Clinton's resignation.

Republicans are pushing Tagg and his mother Ann Romney to campaign for the Senate seat after former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) announced he would not run, reports the Boston Herald.

If he decides to run, Tagg would have to leave his successful venture capital firm, Solamere.

Other potential GOP candidates include State Rep. Dan Winslow (R-Norfolk) and Gabriel Gomez, a Navy SEAL.

On the Democrat side, Rep. Edward Markey is the front-runner.

Tagg often campaigned with his dad and told a radio host, last year, that he want to “take a swing” at President Obama because his father had been depicted as a “liar” during one of the presidential debates.

“But you know you can’t do that because, well, first there is a lot of Secret Service between you and him, but also because this is the nature of the process,” Tagg Romney said at the time.
