In a sign that may indicate his intention to seek the soon-to-be vacated Senate seat currently held by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney quietly changed his location on Twitter from the Bay State to the Beehive State yesterday. 

The change took place just hours after Hatch formally announced he was retiring thus leaving the seat open for Romney

Romney, who was born in Michigan and has lived most of his life in Massachusetts, owns a home in Utah. He claimed Massachusetts as his home state during his failed presidential run in 2012. 

Romney also posted a statement thanking Hatch for his service to the nation:

In the lengthy statement Romney did not reveal his intention to run for Hatch’s seat… but come on… he changed his Twitter location to Utah. The guy’s running.
