After a day's worth of speculation, Tagg Romney now says he will not run for the open Senate seat in Massachusetts.
Here's his statement:
"I have been humbled by the outreach I received this weekend encouraging me to become a candidate for the U.S. 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 U.S. Senator."
Worth noting: Ann Romney, who has also been rumored as a potential candidate, has yet to issue a statement about her own intentions.
