Romney's Senate bid to mark latest campaign over 2 decades
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Mitt Romney's expected run for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah will be his latest bid for public office since he first jumped into politics more than 20 years ago.
Romney had planned to announce his candidacy Thursday but said Wednesday night on Twitter that he would delay it because of the deadly school shooting in Florida. It wasn't clear when he would reschedule.
The former businessman, who is expected to be a heavy favorite in the Utah race, has endured more setbacks than victories since he launched his political journey in the early 1990s, following in the footsteps of his parents who ran decades earlier for governor, president and a U.S. Senate seat in Michigan.
