Looks like Governor Romney will be very busy on February 1st and he has also been very busy.

After completing an intense visit to the Middle East, hiring a couple of new team members, writing an article on President Reagan, having dinner with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and appearing on the Hannity show this week (1/26/11), the Governor was in Boston today to host a lunch for Massachusetts State House Republicans:

Boston —
Former Gov. Mitt Romney hosted Bay State House Republicans for lunch Friday as the 2008 presidential candidate eyes another run for the president.

Romney, who has not formally announced a bid for the nation’s highest office, met with House GOP members to rally support and “meet the troops,” Republican leaders said after the lunch at the Union Club on Park Street, just steps away from the capitol.

Leaving the club with a half-eaten sandwich in his hand, Romney said he was not doing any campaigning.

“I am just here for lunch to say hi to some friends, talk about what is happening here in Massachusetts,” Romney said. “This is a great delegation. I care very deeply about this team.”

“They are doing great work, working very hard to get good jobs for the people of Massachusetts. That is what it is all about. Nice job Brad, keep it up” Romney said to House Minority Leader Brad Jones.

Jones said he invited Romney to meet the Republican caucus, the largest GOP class in 20 years with 31 members. Jones and other Republicans said they would be behind Romney if he decides to run.

“We talked a lot about taxes, jobs and the economy,” Jones said. “Going around the nation, that is what people are concerned about. That’s what people are concerned about in Massachusetts.”


Freshman legislator Rep. Angelo D’Emilia (R-Bridgewater) said it was the first time he had met Romney.

“It gave us freshmen the opportunity to meet the good governor,” D’Emilia said. “He congratulated us. He was happy to see the success we had here in doubling our numbers.”

Rep. Donald Humason Jr. (R-Westfield) said: “I think he is ready, we would certainly be ready to support him. We need a candidate who is good on jobs, good on the economy for this country, and I can’t think of anybody better than Mitt Romney.”
