(Newser) – Scott Brown's political bombshell that he will not run for Senate has Massachusetts Republicans scrambling to find a replacement. Which is why the Boston Herald today floats the inevitable speculation: What about a Romney? And no, not that Romney. Try Ann or son Tagg. The story says some top Republicans—it's a little skimpy on specifics—are at least entertaining the possibility.

“I’ve had several people call me and ask about Ann Romney,” says Ron Kaufman, a longtime aide to Mitt. The Herald runs the possibility by House minority leader Bradley Jones: “That would be a very interesting thing," he says. "I would certainly love her to think about something like that." Of course, a blogger at the liberal Daily Kos would love Mitt himself to run. If no Romney emerges, however, former Gov. William Weld might be the top contender.

(R) 2014 & 2016 Gov. RICK PERRY Report: The last 2012 Presidential Election, Mitt Romney did not carry Massachusetts' 12 Electoral Votes. ONLY Texas Governor RICK PERRY as a Republican Conservative Candidate had won the whole Texas' 34 Electoral Votes to beat Obama in the South, NONE of the others had won their home state, not even Sen. Rick Santorum.

Yes!! Do it. It will weaken Scott Brown is he decides to run for governor.

Two reasons this is a GOP "idea": 1. Money has already been spent on name recognition, it's a bargain. 2. Youthful voice and appearance for the same platform, it's superficial.
