    As in, oldtimer magic underpants.

    The older brother of presidential candidate Mitt Romney is interested in running for the Michigan Senate seat being vacated by Carl Levin in 2014.

    A state GOP official said Friday that Scott Romney, 71, is exploring his options with potential supporters. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak publicly about specific candidates.

    An attorney, Scott Romney lost the 1998 nomination for attorney general at the Michigan Republican Party's convention. One of his ex-wives, Ronna, ran for the Senate in 1996 but lost to Levin.

    Just like that damn Bush dynasty with Jeb now flitting about, these clowns living on last name entitlement just can't take a hint.  Romney = Still trying in Michigan ever since daddy George created the State Income Tax

    Um, no.  No to everything seen the above.

    And he's done what exactly? (none / 0) (#1)

    I'll be fair here.

    I will give him credit for doing one thing right.

    Back in '98 in GR when he was running for AG against Smietanka, the kakistocracy pulled out all of the stops that day to make things go their way.

    Denying credentials to delegates. Calling for re-votes. Multiple challenges to the processes in motion.

    Sound familiar?

    In the end, the blue-bloods failed miserably and were becoming visibly worried on the dais. Those in attendance were well on their way towards an all-out open revolt at the blatantly obvious shenanigans being pulled that day.

    Seeing what was happening, Romney showed a little backbone (far more than those running the convention IMHO) and announced his withdrawal from the race.

    Does that one act alone make him US Senate material?


    But given that just about every name in the phone book was being tossed out yesterday, I'm not surprised in the least that his was among them.

    Has he run a tough campaign? (none / 0) (#2)

    Mitt's campaign (ORCA) didn't impress me. Scott Romney was MSU trustee, but that lives and dies by the top of the ticket. His other campaign was the loss at convention. Does he have the energy to be an effective campaigner? I'm skeptical.

    I don't want to see another campaign like Hoekstra 12 or Bouchard 06. Generic campaign that is outspent and outworked.

    We need a better candidate.
