Republicans in Massachusetts are allegedly "scrambling" for a candidate to run for Senate now that Scott Brown has pulled out of the running. The senate election will take place less than 6 months from now, on June 25.
And in the backroom discussions, Ann Romney has been mentioned several times - as has her son Tagg.
"That would be a very interesting thing. I would certainly love her to think about something like that," MA House Minority Leader Bradley Jones told the Boston Herald. And former Romney campaign aide Ron Kaufman revealed that "I've had several people call me and ask about Ann Romney."
Republicans in the Bay State are apparently "surprised and angered" with Brown, since he was seen as their best option to keep the seat out of Democratic hands.
