Scott Romney 2014 Senate Run Not Happening: Report

Months after one Romney failed to reach the White House, speculation of another Romney running for U.S. Senate appears to be heading closer to a no.

Days after word broke that Scott Romney was considering a 2014 run for Michigan's open U.S. Senate seat, the opposite news surfaced Tuesday.

Michigan Information & Research Service reported that the brother of the 2012 GOP presidential candidate said it was a "tough decision," but knew that it wasn't the "right time" for him to run.

Roll Call also cited a Tuesday GOP source as the bearer of the same news. Back on Friday, an additional Republican source delivered the opposite perspective.

On Thursday, longtime Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) announced that he was not seeking reelection in 2014, paving the way for the opening. Romney, the 71-year old brother of 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, currently serves as a corporate attorney in the Detroit office of Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP.
