Enduring another Romney?
Roll Call is reporting that Scott Romney, Mitt's brother, is giving some thought to running for the senate seat that will be vacated by Democratic Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI). According to the piece, Romney is a "Harvard-educated corporate attorney at the Detroit-based law firm Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn, LLP."
Scott Romney is not exactly a political high flyer, having once run unsuccessfully for the Republican Party nomination to become Michigan Attorney General and having lost an election for a place on the Michigan State Board of Trustees.
Whatever. I guess if your last name is Romney you think you're are just naturally qualified to do anything.
As for the Democrats:
Rep. Gary Peters told The Detroit Free Press editorial board that he is “going to seriously consider” running. Peters, who ended 2012 with nearly $500,000 in cash on hand, is considered the Democrats’ top recruit.
Levin's recent announcement that he would not seek re-election in 2014 has set things in gear in Michigan on both sides of aisle.
This should be a hold for Democrats, but it's still a concern that so many are choosing not to run in 2014.
