The Romney Dynasty Attempt Begins

Josh Romney is “strongly considering” a run for Governor of Utah.

Do these people not see the dynamic going on nationwide?

Even down in Texas, George P. Bush is starting to get lots of negative press and grumblings from the GOP over what more and more people view as light treatment of his office on the way to bigger things. His statements about his office did not help him.

We live in a world where, because of the Jeb Bush candidacy, many Republicans turned to Donald Trump to stop him.

Into this environment, Josh Romney is going to step? Maybe Utah is enough removed from the national sense of things, but I doubt it.

The heir apparent narrative of these dynastic relationships is going to end badly for the families engaged in them.
