Mitt's son has reportedly been approached by Republican officials about the possibility of running in an April special election to fill John Kerry's seat.
Have a connection to the commonwealth of Massachusetts? Interested in politics? How does a run for John Kerry's vacated Senate seat sound?
These have become familiar questions in Boston political circles, where names ranging from Sen. Ted Kennedy's widow Vicki Kennedy to former Democratic Mass. Gov. Michael Dukakis were mentioned as possible fillers for the interim seat, as well as former Republican Mass. Sen. Scott Brown and actor Ben Affleck for the permanent position.
Now, with Democrat Mo Cowan appointed as interim senator and Brown removing his name from contention, there's another high profile name who may throw his hat into the ring: Tagg Romney.
The Boston Herald reports that Romney, 42, whose father Mitt recently lost his bid to supplant Barack Obama as president of the United States, is considering a run for the vacated seat in an April 30 special election.
