Guests

Boston Herald "Calls for Romney, 42, to join in the short campaign to replace Secretary of State John F. Kerry have increased since the Herald first reported heavyweight Republicans are urging both Romney and his mother, Ann, to get in."

Fox 25 "The Congressman posted a minute-long video on his new Facebook page Thursday morning announcing his bid for the democratic nomination for Sen. John Kerry's soon-to-be vacant seat in the U.S. Senate."

Boston Globe "The group, the Conservative Victory Project, is intended to counter other organizations that have helped defeat establishment Republican candidates over the last two election cycles. It is the most robust attempt yet by Republicans to impose a new sense of discipline over the party, particularly in primary races."

This segment aired on February 4, 2013.
