Update:

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.

Original Post:

Since Sen. Scott Brown opted out of the Massachusetts special election for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Sen. John Kerry, the Boston Herald reports that Mitt Romney’s son Tagg is considering a run.

Tagg Romney is considering a run in the special Senate election now that Scott Brown has opted out, the Truth Squad has learned.

Calls for Romney, 42, to join in the short campaign to replace Secretary of State John F. Kerry have increased since the Herald first reported heavyweight Republicans are urging both Romney and his mother, Ann, to get in.

For more background on Tagg Romney, read this McCay Coppins story he wrote during the election about “taking charge” during his father’s campaign. Tagg also made the headlines for saying that he felt like he “wanted to take a swing” at President Obama after he called his dad a liar during one of the presidential debates.

Can another Romney win in Massachusetts?
