Republican William Weld, Democrat Gerard Leone won’t seek Senate seat

Tagg Romney, son of 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said today he would not run for the Massachusetts US Senate seat opening up because of the departure of John F. Kerry to be secretary of state.

Former governor William F. Weld and former lieutenant governor Kerry Healey also said they would not run, leaving few strong options for Bay State Republicans hoping for a victory in the June 25 special election in the traditionally blue state.
