Does Mitt Romney Have a Chance to Be Elected President?
Outgoing Republican Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, whose one term heading the state ends today (January 4th), filed papers yesterday forming an exploratory committee, the first step towards running for president in 2008. Romney is entering a crowded Republican field, led by more the well-known Senator John McCain and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. Romney, best known for his work on the 2002 Winter Olympics, would be the first Mormon president. Despite his one term as governor being his only experience in elective office, the 59-year-old Romney has a political pedigree as the son of former Michigan Governor George Romney.
