The Osmonds may have a candidate afterall... maybe even two

This morning's L.A. Times claims Willard is reassessing his endorsement of John McCain and may jump back into the GOP presidential race in light of McCain's inability to attract any support from conservatives and in light of all the scandals that have already come up concerning McCain's dealing with lobbyists. ("Everyone" in Washington-- except apparently his soul sister Joe Lieberman-- knows McCain hasn't been loyal to Cindy in many, many years and that he's always chasing around like a cat in heat. Normal Americans don't care about this kind of thing; the Republican base does.) "Josh Romney, one of former Gov. Mitt Romney's five sons, says it's 'possible' his father may rejoin the race for the White House, either as a vice presidential candidate or seek to become the Republican Party's standard bearer if the campaign of Sen. John McCain falters."

And that isn't the only political race Josh is concerned with. According to today's Deseret Morning News Josh himself may be running... for Congress. There is talk of Josh taking on reactionary Blue Dog Democrat Jim Matheson.
Utahns may get the chance to vote for a Romney this November after all-- Josh Romney, the son of former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, says he's considering a run for Congress.

Of course, there's always the possibility that Mitt Romney may end up on the ballot as a vice presidential candidate-- or even, some suggest, the party's nominee if the campaign of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., continues to falter.

Josh Romney told the Deseret Morning News that after a year of campaigning across country for his father, he's been approached to run as a Republican against 2nd Congressional District Rep. Jim Matheson, D-Utah.

"I haven't ruled it out," Josh Romney, 32, of Millcreek, said of becoming a candidate himself. "I'm pretty young, but I've had good experience on the campaign trail." [He drove a motor home to all 99 counties in Iowa and blogged about it.] Plus, he said, he likely could count on his father's supporters here in Utah.

...Josh Romney is the only one of the family's five sons who lives in Utah. His father, who served as the head of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, was considered a "favorite son" presidential candidate in Utah.

Mitt Romney collected more contributions in Utah than in any other state except California and won Utah's Feb. 5 GOP primary with 90 percent of the vote. He and his family are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as are the majority of Utahns.
