Ready for another Romney run? Tagg Romney is not.
Boston Herald reported today that the eldest son of Mitt and Ann Romney is considering a run in the special Senate election in Massachusetts now that former senator Scott Brown decided against a run last week.
Two sources close to both Tagg and his father Mitt tell ABC News it's not going to happen. One consideration for Tagg Romney may be that his father lost the Bay State in last year's presidential election by 23 points.
"I think Tagg would be a great candidate," a source close to both Romneys said. "He grew tremendously in the campaign, but with his company it's unlikely he can afford to walk away from it right now, sadly."
Tagg Romney, 42, started the venture capital firm Solamere Capital after his father's last unsuccessful campaign in 2008. In both campaigns he advised his father and worked hard to get his dad to the White House. During this run he had an even more critical role.
Tagg Romney and his wife Jen had twin sons via a surrogate in May, juggling newborns as well as a presidential campaign.
A Republican strategist with knowledge of state party discussions also told ABC News he seriously doubted the likelihood of any Romney candidacy in the upcoming Senate election.
