Fox News: Josh Romney Mulling Congressional Bid

Josh Romney Mulling Congressional Bid

Josh Romney, the son of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, may take his own shot at politics, possibly running for Congress against Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson in Utah.

The 32-year-old real estate developer told the Deseret Morning News that the last year spent helping his father with his White House bid equipped him with the skills he would need to seek office. He could also fall back on a wide network of support that was built around Mitt Romney’s effort.
“I haven’t ruled it out,” Romney said, according to Monday’s newspaper. “I’m pretty young, but I’ve had good experience on the campaign trail.”

Romney said one consideration is whether he wants to go out on the road again and spend more time away from his wife, Jen, and their three children, Owen, 1; Wyatt, 3; and Gracie, 5.

Romney drove a motor home throughout Iowa and other states, including Wyoming, Alaska and Colorado, during his father’s presidential campaign. Mitt Romney, considered a favorite son of heavily Mormon Utah, won the Beehive State with 90 percent of the vote.
