Washington, Mar 9: Scott Romney, brother of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, has expressed interest in contesting running for the Senate in Michigan in 2014.
A Michigan GOP source close to Scott Romney, Mitt’s older brother, has expressed interest in running.
Scott Romney, 71, a Michigan State University and Harvard Law alumnus, currently works as a corporate attorney at the law firm Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn, LLP in Detroit.
He made a public political appearance at last year’s Republican National Convention, announcing Michigan’s delegation.
According to the Huffington Post, if the speculation proves true, this will not be Scott’s first shot at political office.
In 1998, he sought the Michigan Republican Party’s nomination for state attorney general. He lost the nomination, however, to John Smietanka, who was defeated by Democrat Jennifer Granholm in the general election, the report said.
Michigan has not had an open Senate seat in nearly two decades, nor has a Michigan Republican served in the U.S. Senate since 2001.
Other rumored Republican candidates vying for Levin’s seat are Republicans Dave Camp, Mike Rogers and Justin Amash, the report added. (ANI)
