Romney Forms Exploratory Committee

Now former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney filed paperwork yesterday to form a presidential exploratory committee:

"After talking to my family, I have decided to take this initial step of forming an exploratory committee in order to raise the resources and build the campaign organization required to pursue the highest office in our country," Governor Romney said. "I look forward to continuing to talk with the American people to determine the best way we can meet a new generation of challenges."
Romney "has not made a decision on when he will officially and formally declare his candidacy."

There are now 7 2008 presidential candidates that have formed exploratory committees:

Kansas Senator Sam Brownback
New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani
Arizona Senator John McCain
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney
Former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson

Former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel
Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich
Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack
