Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney changed his Twitter location Tuesday to say he resides in Utah, the same day that one of the state’s Senate seats opened up.
Republican Utah Senator Orin Hatch announced he would be retiring in 2018 Tuesday, and just hours later, Romney changed his location to Holladay, Utah, according to a Bloomberg report. Previously, Romney’s Twitter bio read that he resided in Massachusetts.
Romney, a Utah resident, has not announced whether he plans to run for the seat or not, though an anonymous adviser told The New York Times that an announcement would be coming in the next couple weeks.
“As chairman of the Senate Finance and Judiciary Committees and as the longest-serving Republican senator in US history, Senator Hatch has represented the interests of Utah with distinction and honor,” Romney said in a statement about Hatch’s retirement. “Ann and I wish Senator Orrin Hatch and his loving wife Elaine all the best in their future endeavors.”
