Mitt Romney was mum on whether he plans to run for Senate after Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah announced he’ll retire after 2018. But Romney’s Twitter profile may give a hint about his thinking.
As of 3:12 p.m. East Coast time, it read “Massachusetts,” where Romney formerly served as governor. By 5:45 p.m., it was tweaked to Holladay, Utah. Romney is thought to be a potential contender for that Senate seat.
The change — which was made after Twitter users noted that he still listed his location as Massachusetts — is a sign that Romney may be considering running for Hatch’s seat and wants to quash questions about his residency.
“I join the people of Utah in thanking my friend, Senator Orrin Hatch for his more than forty years of service to our great state and nation,” Romney said in a statement posted to Facebook Tuesday afternoon. “As Chairman of the Senate Finance and Judiciary Committees and as the longest-serving Republican Senator in U.S. history, Senator Hatch has represented the interests of Utah with distinction and honor.”
He didn’t reveal his intentions about the Senate.
