Romney Thinking About Run For Massachusetts Office in 2002

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- In a recent interview in Salt Lake City, Romney, a Belmont Republican, was asked how his time spent in Utah to restore ethical and fiscal accountability to the Olympics might affect a bid for office in Massachusetts. "I think it probably communicates that there is more in my life than making money in business. That certainly is not what I lived for when I was back there but I think I was able to be characterized by my opponent as being a ruthless businessman....I think this at least broadens the perspective of who I am."

Romney lost a 1994 bid to unseat Senator Edward M. Kennedy. When asked what went wrong six years ago, he believes his Mormon faith did not play a part in the race. "I don't believe my faith played any significant role in the election. The significant role was a whole series of political questions and the fact that I was running against an icon."

"I would love to run, or serve in public service, if I thought I could win and if I believed I could get my message across," Romeny said. Romney has kept his home in Belmont along with a vacation home on Lake Winnipesaukee. He also has a seat on the board of Staples.

As if saving the scandal-tarred 2002 Winter Olympics isn't enough, Mitt Romney is also thinking about running for office in Massachusetts that year.
