It's been speculated that Mitt Romney could be a possible candidate to replace Republican U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah.


Romney's announcement isn't exactly a surprise. Earlier this month, he tweeted that he'd be making an announcement Feb. 15 about the Senate race in Utah.

As we previously reported, Romney is pretty popular in the deep-red state. And he's not expected to face stiff competition.

Romney is looking to replace Sen. Orrin Hatch, who announced earlier this year he's not running for re-election.
