Remember when Mitt Romney’s son Tagg said he wanted to hit the President during one of the presidential debates?

Well now the eldest Romney son is reportedly considering a run in the special Senate election to replace newly-appointed Secretary of State John F. Kerry, according to the Boston Herald. He is said to have made the decision after Senator Scott Brown opted out of the race.

Tagg most recently made headlines after expressing how he wanted to physically assault President Obama when he called his father a liar.

“[You want to] jump out of your seat and you want to rush down to the stage and take a swing at him,” he stated during a radio interview. “But you know you can’t do that because there’s a lot of Secret Service between you and him, but also because that’s the nature of the process.”

He later apologized to the President for his comment.

Other potential candidates for the Senate spot include Rep. Dan. Winslow and Gabriel Gomez.
