“He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to . . . run,” Tagg Romney told the Globe. “If he could have found someone else to take his place . . . he would have been ecstatic to step aside.”
The Globe article also noted that “Tagg … worked with his mother, Ann, to persuade his father to seek the presidency.”
