LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The older brother of presidential candidate Mitt Romney is interested in running for the Michigan Senate seat being vacated by Carl Levin in 2014.

A state GOP official said Friday that Scott Romney, 71, is exploring his options with potential supporters. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak publicly about specific candidates.

An attorney, Scott Romney lost the 1998 nomination for attorney general at the Michigan Republican Party's convention. One of his ex-wives, Ronna, ran for the Senate in 1996 but lost to Levin.

The 78-year-old Levin announced Thursday he will not seek re-election for the seat he first won 34 years ago.

Scott Romney sits on the board of Michigan State University's law school and earned a bachelor's degree from the school.

    He would do the state good. He would be that good balance of liberal and conservative
