Tagg Romney won’t run for Senate

February 4, 2013

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.
