Mitt Romney made his candidacy for the Senate official Thursday by filing his papers.
The former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential candidate tweeted a photo of himself at the office of Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox.
"Today, I visited the office of LG @SpencerJCox to officially file for the US Senate race," Romney wrote. "In the month since I announced my candidacy, I've driven nearly 4,000 miles to meet with Utahns in 20 counties. Hope I'll get the chance to meet you soon and earn your vote."
Romney announced last month he is running for the Senate seat that is currently occupied by Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. The 83-year-old Hatch is retiring at the end of this year after a lengthy Senate career that began in 1977.
Romney's presidential bid in 2012 fell short to then-President Barack Obama. He also interviewed with President Donald Trump for the job of secretary of state before Trump took office.
