BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- Despite encouragement from Utah political leaders, LDS businessman Mitt Romney plans to return to Massachusetts after the 2002 Olympic games. He is believed to be considering a a bid for the 2002 Massachusetts gubernatorial race.

Many observers view Romney as being the Republican party's best challenger if incumbent Governor Paul Cellucci does not seek re-election. Romney has publicly stated that he is considering running for the office.

Romney has retained his voter registration in Belmont, Massachusetts, and he voted in the state's presidential primary. This enables him to meet the Massachusetts requirement that candidates reside in the state for seven years prior to running for office

In 1995 Romney considered, but declined, an invitation to run against U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry. Romney lost a race with Sen. Edward Kennedy the previous year. Republican party sources say that the difficult race against Kennedy left Romney reluctant to run again, but that his work with the Olympic Games has helped to restore his reputation.
