As reported here, after Scott Brown opted out of running for the coveted Senate seat in Massachusetts, the GOP began its search for a formidable candidate in order to avert an electoral win for Democrats. Republicans considered Ann Romney and also Tagg Romney. The Boston Herald reported Monday morning that the 42-year-old son of Mitt and Ann Romney was considering a run after others displayed an interest. And now he’s reached a decision.

Full @tromney statement to me @nydailynews – “I have been humbled by the outreach I received this weekend encouraging me to become a candidate for the US 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 US Senator”
Dammit. Well, this might leave the door open for Ann Romney. Or, Sarah Palin could move to Massachusetts. Does Elmer Fudd live in Massachusetts? He’s pro-gun. I know ‘you people’ miss the clown show too.
