Of course if he does not run it will not matter.
    I suspect it would depend on the state's residency requirement regarding the length of the residency. For example, remember a while back a Senator from New York resided there for 6 months in order to qualify to be its representative. I have no idea what Mr. Romney will or will not do and because I am not a resident of Utah, its none of my business. As a State's right advocate, I support that the citizens of Utah have the right to determine their Senate representation.

    Nope, was just providing an example of a state residency requirement. I made no comment about New York other than that and I most assuredly support their right to set their residency requirements.

    He has a home here in New Hampshire and one in Massachusetts. If he owns one in Utah that makes three. He must have made Utah his primary residence.

    As per wikipedia he's moved to Utah with family a while ago.. including having his voter registration in Utah.

    i guess that should do the trick, if he would decide to run.

    Residency requirements are pretty easy to get around, otherwise Dick Cheney wouldn't have been allowed to run as VP back in 2000, since he lived in Texas.

    When he ran for president, G H W Bush lived in Connecticut. His Texas address was a hotel suite.

    Yeah. It's not difficult to get around residency requirements -- especially for the very wealthy.
